Augustana Hosts Conference Tournament

Augustana College
the Augustana College basketball team, celebrating Tuesday night's victory.

Thanks to Tuesday night's come-from-behind victory, the Augustana College men's basketball team has won a share of its fourth consecutive CCIW championship.

The Vikings will host the CCIW Men's Basketball Tournament at the Carver Center this weekend. On Friday at 5 pm, North Central plays Illinois Wesleyan, with Augustana taking on Wheaton at 7. 

The two winners on Friday will play at 7 pm Saturday for a trip to the NCAA Division-3  Men's Basketball Tournament. If the Vikings win, it will be their fifth consecutive tournament appearance.

After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
