Students at Concord University began their second semester on Tuesday, but men’s and women’s basketball have already been hard at work on the court in 2019. With winter break now over, Kenny Osborne and Todd May’s players will be back in the classroom as well. And, the return to normalcy is welcomed by both coaches.
“I just think when you get back in school it’s a regular routine and I think that’s very beneficial,” Osborne said. “Again, they know what’s coming up — we don’t throw curveballs at them as much because of class schedules.”
“You know, I’m such a routine guy and I think it trickles down to our guys of getting back being in class,” May said. “Knowing when practices are — at a set time and like I said, I think that’s very beneficial for the team and the guys.”
Both groups will travel to the panhandle to take on Wheeling Jesuit on Thursday. Tip-off is set at 5:30 for the women and 7:30 p.m. for the men.
