The UMHB men’s and women’s basketball teams, both nationally ranked, head to Austin to face Concordia in their ASC openers on Saturday afternoon. We have you covered on both the men’s and women’s matchups in this preview presented by The Best Of Belton.

BELTON- The home opener for the No. 2-ranked UMHB men’s basketball team on Wednesday night was not your typical regular season game.
CLAREMONT, California- The plane trip back to Belton will be a good one.
For a team that opened its time on the west coast with a frustrating 80-71 loss to a quality, yet unranked Claremont-Mudd-Scripps squad, the Crusaders will be leaving the golden state with a Top 25 victory in tow, and a 2-1 record.
BELTON, Texas- For the second night in a row, the No. 2-ranked UMHB men’s basketball team found itself in a hole in the blink of the eye. On Tuesday, the Crusaders folded beneath the frustration and pressure, falling 80-71. But less than 24 hours later, exhibiting the maturity anticipated from a squad with a number of key returners, the response was 180 degrees different.
CLAREMONT, California-UMHB head coach Clif Carroll knew that opening the 2022-23 season on the road against three quality SCIAC opponents would not be the easiest of starts for his squad, ranked No. 2 in the nation. But he wanted them challenged, given a preview in some ways of what the postseason entails, both in the nature of playing three games in four days, and facing tournament-caliber opponents in each of those.
