Back in late November the MC Raptors added two conference games to their win column with a 13-point victories over Anne Arundel Community College at home and a 25-point win on the road against Howard Community College. Poor free throw shooting down the stretch and some missed opportunities caused the Raptors to drop a tough double overtime loss to undefeated Garrett 76-75 on Saturday, December 3.  

The Raptors bounced back from their one-point loss with a 99-78 victory over Pennsylvania Highlands on Tuesday, December 6th. The Raptors leading point scorer, Collin Turner contributed 20 points coming off the bench and shot 8 for 8 from the free throw line.
