Student News | Thursday, March 19, 2020
The Columbus State men’s basketball team pulled out a win in the consolation bracket of the Div. III national tournament, ending their season as the No. 9 ranked team in the tournament. The players will be recognized later this semester for their strong season.
They entered the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Div. III national tournament in Rochester, Minnesota on March 11 and lost to Herkimer County Community College, the 2019 National Champions.
In the consolation bracket on March 12, the Columbus State Cougars had a decisive victory over the Community College of Rhode Island 109-93.
A majority of the players are Central Ohio students. As a Div. III program, players do not receive sports scholarships. They play for the love of the game, the camaraderie, and the competition.
