Basketball fans are encouraged to wear white when the Colby Community College men’s team hosts Butler Community College at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the first round of the Region VI playoffs. Admission is free, and the first 100 people through the Community Building doors will receive a T-shirt.

The Trojans enter as the No. 7 seed with an overall record of 17-13 and a Jayhawk Conference mark of 12-9. Butler (16-13, 9-11) is the 10 seed. The two teams squared off Dec. 1 when the Trojans won an overtime thriller in El Dorado, 82-74.

The CCC women are also in action Wednesday. They play at Cowley Community College as the No. 13 seed after going 8-21 this season and 3-18 in the conference. Fourth-seeded Cowley (23-7, 14-6) won the only head-to-head contest by a score of 86-56 in Arkansas City on Jan. 5.

Winners of both contests advance to the Region VI quarterfinal games March 2-3 in Park City’s Hartman Arena.
