It's tournament time for the JCU Men's Basketball team, who earned its first bid in the NCAA Division III Tournament bracket since 2018. The 2023 OAC Coach of the Year, Pete Moran ’08, led the Blue Streaks to a stellar 22-3 regular season record and the OAC regular season title.
The team heads to Oswego State in Oswego, New York, for its first-round matchup against Albertus Magnus. The game is scheduled for Friday, March 3rd, at 3:15 p.m. If the Blue Streaks win their first round game, they'll face the winner of Oswego State vs. Marymount (Virginia) on Saturday evening at 5:45 p.m.
This season has been a complete turnaround from last year's campaign; the 2021-22 team was 8 -16 and finished last in OAC standings. Many attribute this season's success to JCU landing eight transfer players in the off-season.
