Raiders Prepare To Head East For Rematch With Chipola Wednesday

Call it showdown number two for the men's teams of Northwest Florida and Chipola. Those two will meet Wednesday night on the latter's floor. The Indians coming off a win at TCC, the Raiders coming off a home win over Gulf Coast.

That leaving Northwest at 6-0 in Conference play, a game and a half ahead of the second place Indians who are 4-1. That lone league loss coming in Niceville on a couple of weeks ago.

Raiders head coach Steve DeMeo telling us this Monday as his team prepares to head east in a couple of nights!

"You know Chipola is a team, that name resonates nationally, as well as in our state and in our league. And our guys are excited to go over there and play them in front of a hostile crowd. You know at this point we're 6-0 in the league and I think we're heading in the right direction. We added Ludgey Debaut back, he was out two months with a stress fracture. He's played in our last two games and has been very good. And we'll start playing him a lot more as we move forward from here on out."

Debaut is a 6-10 sophomore center from the island of Guadalupe. That game Wednesday night at Chipola set for 7:30. The women's game will start at 5:30.
