PJC Dragons, Lady Dragons host Jacksonville tonight in basketball doubleheader

NJCAA-logo-300x285Paris Junior College will entertain Jacksonville College in a basketball doubleheader at the Hunt Center tonight.

Coach Michael Madrid’s Lady Dragons (7-8 for the season, 1-2 in Region 14 play) will play the Lady Jaguars (7-6, 1-1) at 5:30 p.m., followed by Coach Chuck Taylor’s Dragons (10-4, 3-1) against the Jaguars (6-9, 1-4) at 7:30 p.m.

“We’d sure like to have a good crowd out there to cheer us on,” Taylor said, noting it’s his team’s first game on the PJC campus in late November. After about three weeks off between semesters, the Dragons resumed play with easy wins last week over Angelina (88-77) and Coastal Bend (76-50).
