Basketball players from all over the Midwest are arriving in the Quad Cities for the Missouri Valley Conference Women's Basketball Tournament. Hoops in the Heartland begins Thursday at the TaxSlayer Center in Moline.
"Let's keep hockey in the Quad Cities." That's the slogan at the TaxSlayer Center in Moline - on Friday it began selling season tickets for next year even though the Quad City Mallards will officially cease operations this weekend.
With little or no warning, a disappointing season for the Quad City Mallards has become even more disappointing. Tuesday owner Jordan Melville announced the team will cease operations at the end of the season.
