Congratulations to the Lee College Runnin’ Rebels basketball team, which made its first trip to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s National Championship Tournament in Hutchinson, KS, one to remember.
In addition to winning their first regional title in school history, the No. 21 seeded Rebels defeated No. 12 Hagerston Community College 104-97 on Monday, March 18. They fell to No. 5 Vincennes University, 84-80, in the second round of tournament on Tuesday, but had an excellent game, averaging 1.17 points per possession, scoring 48 points off the bench, and holding their opponent to just 84 points.
