* NCCAA2 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP *
The National Christian College Athletic Association Division 2 national championship tournament got underway yesterday. The 5th seeded FLORIDA CHRISTIAN COLLEGE SUNS edged the 12th seeded CENTRAL BIBLE COLLEGE SPARTANS in a 74-70 game for the ages.
In an 11 seed over a 6 seed upset the ever-tough OZARK CHRISTIAN COLLEGE AMBASSADORS laid low the VALLEY FORGE COLLEGE PATRIOTS. The final score in this game that embodied everything great about college athletics was Ambassadors 78 Patriots 73. OCC and FCC play next on Thursday.
In the 8 vs 9 matchup both teams put up Century Club- worthy points. The 8th seeded MANHATTAN CHRISTIAN COLLEGE CRUSADERS defeated the 9th seeded MULTNOMAH LIONS in a 120-111 scoring frenzy. This game redefined the expression “large basket”.
