The USC Salkehatchie men’s basketball team will play in the NJCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas beginning March 18, 2013. This is the first time that a USC Salkehatchie athletic team will participate in a national tournament.
Although the Indians did lose to Spartanburg Methodist College in the region tournament on Saturday, this year the runner-up in Region X also received a berth in the national tournament . Our team played a great tournament, losing to Spartanburg Methodist by only 3 points. Spartanburg Methodist is undefeated this season and is the number one team in the nation and is the number two seed in the national tournament.
The Indians will leave for Kansas on Thursday and will play their first game against Northwest Florida State on Monday, March 18 at noon. The game will be broadcast on the NJCAA website at www.njcaa.org<http://www.njcaa.org> and a special big screen viewing will be set up in the atrium in Allendale and in room 111 in Walterboro so everyone at Salk can watch the big game.
Both Trent Kinard and Dawn Rizer will be at the game in Hutchinson for lots of pictures and posting of scores and information on Facebook, Twitter and our athletics webpage. Be sure to check regularly for updates and information on the team.
