Seniors rise to the occasion

What a game! What a win! What a great way for Michael (Fakuade) and Lester (Hart) to celebrate their birthdays!! In case you haven't heard, I'm talking about our Stars men's basketball game and their 1-point victory this past Saturday!! This critical win (70-69) over the University of Missouri St. Louis insures our first-ever GLVC Conference Tournament appearance. Congratulations, coaches and players – we're so proud of you! Since it was Senior Day, it was really nice to meet the parents of our senior players, Michael, Lester, Jermaine and Chigozie. We had the best crowd ever at the game and the Blue Crew gets bigger and louder every week! If you haven't seen our team play – you'll have another chance in the first round of the tournament here in Springfield. Check the UIS athletic website for details and get to the next game!
