Mountain East Conference: Both UC teams advance to quarterfinal action
On the opening day of the Mt. East Conference Tournament at the Charleston Civic Center Coliseum, both University of Charleston basketball teams played first round games.
And the Eagles and Lady Golden Eagles lived to play another day.
UC's men's team knocked off Urbana on Wednesday evening while the Lady Golden Eagles won earlier in the day over West Liberty.
The Lady Eagles play Thursday against top-seeded Glenville in the quarterfinals while the UC men will be back on the floor Friday to collide with top-seeded Fairmont State.
Also winning on Wednesday were the Shepherd women and the Glenville State men.
All four women's quarterfinals are Thursday. The men's quarterfinals are set for Friday.
Saturday will feature semifinal action and Sunday will be the championships.
