After a lengthy tournament run the U.N.I. basketball team can enjoy the accomplishments of the just ended season. The Panthers made it all the way to the Midwest Regional semifinals before losing to Michigan State last Friday night in St. Louis.
U.N.I. coach Ben Jacobson says he is proud of the team, the student body and the crowd that came to the game. he says the crowd was unbelieveable. “And that was the neatest basketball experience that I have ever been a part of,” Jacobson said. He says it has “been a terrific ride.”
Jacobson gives much of the credit to a five-man senior class that not only put up big numbers but also provided leadership. He says having a great season doesn’t guarantee that you get to do it again, but he says having seniors who build a foundation of working hard, allows you to do that.
