ATHENS, W.Va. (WVVA) - The Concord men and women will open 2022 play on the road at West Liberty on Wednesday.

The women will play first -- with tip-off at 5:30 PM.

“We played our last game I think it was on {Dec.} the 17th. They played on the 18th, so we’ve both had basically the same amount of time off,” Kenny Osborne, the women’s head coach, said. “But you don’t know how you’re going to come back the first or second day out of the gate. We’ll just have to wait and see... Do you shoot the ball well? Do you not shoot the ball well? All those things come into play. It’s almost like the first game of the season, you get a little more jacked up.”

The men will follow the women’s game. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 PM.

“We like to play fast, we like to get up and down,” Todd May, the men’s head coach, said. “It comes down to making shots. When we beat them {West Liberty} here last year, we were able to make shots against them. And then in the tournament game up at Wheeling, we didn’t make shots. So we’ve got to make shots. We’re going to attack it like we always do.”
