Referee Tim Bass signals for a three point shot while getting a “closer look” with those huge glasses.
Over $4,000.00 raised annual fight for cancer
By: Sean Solheim Murray County News Staffwriter

The 2012-2013 Rebel basketball seasons may have recently wrapped up for the year, but the stands were filled and the sound of squeaking shoes and basketballs hitting the floor filled the gym at MCC for one last time. Students and staff members from Murray County Central formed two teams to square off against each other, and though they were facing each other, they were actually one giant team competing against an even bigger opponent...Cancer.

The Coaches vs. Cancer event was held for another year at MCC and once again, everyone proved that that evil “C” word will always be the away team and that together, a school and community can rise up, give hope, and fight towards a cure. Since 1993, thousands of high schools from around the nation, along with over 2,000 Division I, II, and III colleges have participated in the Coaches vs. Cancer event. The idea started from former University of Missouri’s head coach Norm Stewart and has prospered into the famous event of entertainment, fundraising, and fighting towards a cure.

The entertainment for the MCC version of Coaches vs. Cancer grew even more this year. With full rosters on the staff and student teams, local referees Tim Bass and Sam Jens sporting pink and black striped uniforms, along with half time entertainment that most people never saw coming, the night ended up being more successful than last year’s event. In fact, it was almost twice as good as last year’s event.
