AWC basketball gets clean sweep!

Both men's and women's teams beat Glendale

YUMA, Ariz. - - With a little less than 2 months remaining in the regular season, the race for Region 1 playoff contention is still up for grabs for both the AWC men's and women's basketball programs.

The women's team is on a 2-game winning streak, after their recent buzzer beating shot by Raven Roberts to knock off Central Arizona on the road.

The Lady Mats were in for another game of stiff competition, as they took on Glendale. 

This game would be close until the final 4 minutes in regulation, when the Lady Mats pulled away to grab the 57-49 victory.

Meanwhile, the men's team was heavily favored in their clash with the Gauchos; as they built a 19 point lead midway through the 1st half.

Even though Glendale pulled within 9 points before the end of the half, the Matadors would take command of the game and get the 115-81 blowout win.
