It was one last tune-up before the Kilgore College Rangers begin Region XIV Conference play, and the engine is humming and ready to go.
The Rangers, ranked third in the nation and the defending RXIV Conference tournament champs, were back in action Wednesday night at Grayson College in Denison, and came home with an 83-71 win. There will be a rematch of the game here on Friday, Nov. 26, as Grayson comes here to Masters Gym.
KC is now 5-0, and was to open conference play Friday night at home against Angelina. They’ll also play Cedar Valley here today at 4, then visit Hill College on Tuesday, a busy few days for the Rangers.

The Lady Rangers, coached by Addie Lees, are also 5-0, and ranked number 22 in the women’s NJCAA poll. They’ve been off for a few days; they’re off, in fact, until next Friday, when they’ll play in the Collin College Classic in Plano. They play Grayson College next Friday at 11 a.m., then play next Saturday at 1 p.m. against Collin College. On Wednesday, Dec. 1, they play at Hill College in Hillsboro.
