After coming back from winter break, the Denver Cyclone basketball teams were ready to get back into the basketball groove. The Denver ladies lost a close one after a comeback was stopped short by the Hudson Pirates. The Denver men had a sluggish start but shook it off to win big, 78-52.

The Pirates jumped ahead of the Lady Cyclones early in the first half, outscoring the Cyclones 25-13 at halftime. The Cyclones were outplayed and contained by the Pirates on both sides of the ball, but on offense, Lila Meyer and Kambrie Clinton were the major helpers in the first half, each scoring 5 points.

In the second half, the lady Cyclones began a comeback led by freshmen Reese Johnson and Sarah Steege, who had four 3-pointers in the second half and 5 points respectively to bring the Cyclones within 3 points of the Pirates midway through the 4th quarter. This comeback, however, was brought to an end after Hudson hit consecutive shots to seal the game and win, 51-42.
