PRCC’s next games are set for Thursday, with the women visiting Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College while the men host MGCCC at Marvin R. White Coliseum.

The MACCC has announced make-up dates for this week’s PRCC’s games with Hinds Community College, which were postponed by COVID-19 .

The Wildcats will travel to Raymond on Feb. 19 to take on Hinds, while the PRCC women will host HCC on the same day in Poplarville.

Both games originally were scheduled for Feb. 8, however they were canceled due to Hinds dealing with COVID-19 issues within their programs.
