OK – It’s NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball
The John Carroll men’s basketball team made school history on the night of Saturday, March 13, in Wooster, Ohio. By virtue of its 70-64 victory over Wooster in the sectional final of the 2004 NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball Championship, JCU is advancing to its first Final Four.
While the Blue Streaks had enjoyed success at home all season, they had to prove an ability to win on the road if they wished to reach Salem, Virginia. Following a win at home over Calvin (88-77) in the opening round, John Carroll defeated Wittenberg (84-65) on the road on March 6, Maryville (76-74) on a neutral court this past Friday, and Wooster (70-64) on the Fighting Scots’ home floor Saturday.
John Carroll hopes to build upon its school-record 26 wins this season with a successful appearance in the Final Four. Standing in the way will be three top ten teams according to the latest d3hoops.com poll.
