LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — The Motlow Bucks will host their final home games of the 2022-23 regular season this week at Copperweld Arena on the Moore County campus. Admission is free.

The Bucks (7-18, 4-12) will host TCCAA rival Cleveland State at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 22, then host non-conference Experience Academy at the same time on Thursday. The final regular season game is Saturday with Motlow traveling to Memphis to play Southwest Tennessee at 4 p.m.

The men’s start time on Wednesday is moved to 5:30 p.m. due to the Motlow women’s basketball team cancelling the remainder of its season due to injuries and illness.
