Central Pennsylvania Goes 0-3 vs. Mid-South Conference Teams in Kentucky

Central Pennsylvania College likely played the toughest three day schedule of any other team in USCAA men's basketball (probably of any team in the nation at any level) this week.

The Knights opened their season with back-to-back-to-back games at University of Pikeville, Georgetown College and Campbellsville University.

As expected, the Knights played hard but feel short in all three games.
