For the men’s and women’s basketball teams, conference games begin tomorrow (Dec. 3)! This is when the season really gets exciting. In conference play each team plays everybody twice. So by the middle of January the second half of conference starts. But this week is when every game counts towards winning conference! Everybody steps their game up, plays tougher defense, never backs down, and everyone leaves it all on the court. During conference is when the rivalries get crazy. For the women’s team, our main rivalries are against Tabor, Friends, and Sterling. Every game is a big game, but when we play these teams, it becomes a huge game! With conference starting this week the whole team is getting really pumped for the games! This Thursday Bethel plays at Ottawa, and Saturday Bethel plays at Tabor!
