The men hoopsters were active over the holiday break, posting six victories against two losses during the stretch. The team was ranked fourth before break and rose to second in the nation during a tough latent schedule.  The team fell to third in the nation, where it is currently positioned, according to the NJCAA’s latest rankings.

The team posted some impressive victories over top-ranked opponents, with the highlight being that of the pounding it gave to its rival, Des Moines Area Community College, 100 to 59.
