Prince George's faces its first road test of the season at the McDonald's Garrett Tipoff Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
The Owls will be playing a pair of key NJCAA Region XX Division III opponents that will set up the seeding for the region tournament at the end of the year hosted by Prince George's Community College. The Largo program opens the tournament against Pennsylvania Highlands Community College on Friday and then will face CCAC Allegheny on Saturday.
It will be the only meeting against Pennsylvania Highlands in the regular season while the Owls will travel to CCAC Allegheny on Dec. 19, but only the first meeting on the year counts toward the seeding process.
Prince George's has played each team dating back to the 2012-13 season and has won all six meetings against both programs in that stretch.
The entire tournament will be streamed through Garrett College's You Tube Channel (links above). There will not be live stats for the games, but we will update you with information when provided.
