The calendar is quickly turning through the fall seasons and that means the return of basketball at YC is imminent.
While an official schedule release and media day are upcoming, Head Coach Jay Joyner and his men’s basketball squad are preparing to win games and have already used three of their four scrimmage dates allotted by the NJCAA.
The fourth date, however, is going to be a treat for fans across Yavapai County as the Roughriders are set to play once in the Verde Valley and once in Prescott on Saturday, October 15.
The first scrimmage for YC will take place at Mingus Union High School in Cottonwood, Arizona, at noon against Taylor Made Prep. Following that matchup, the Roughriders will hit the road for a second scrimmage inside of Walraven Gymnasium in Prescott, Arizona, against Justice College at 5 p.m.
“I think I speak for everyone around here when I say that we are fired up for basketball season,” Director of Athletics Brad Clifford said. “The return of basketball means a lot to me personally and a lot to this community. I am excited to see our fans in the Verde and in Prescott come support the return of Roughrider basketball.”
