(WVVA) - Bluefield College men's and women's basketball will play their Appalachian Athletic Conference First Round matchups on the road this weekend.
The Rams (7-12) will enter the conference tournament as the ninth seed, having lost five of their last six games. One of those losses came by forfeit, after the entire team served a one-game suspension for kneeling during the national anthem.
No. 8 Kentucky Christian will host the men on Saturday. Bluefield College is 0-2 this season against the Knights.
The Lady Rams (6-10) are the eleventh seed in the bracket and will travel to No. 6 Montreat. The women topped Montreat in the only regular season meeting, 64-61 back in January.
Game times are still to be announced. The remainder of the tournament will be played in Kingsport, Tennessee from February 24-27.
