The Garrett College Men’s Basketball team will travel to Hagerstown to face the Community College of Beaver County Saturday, March 1’st in the first round of the NJCAA Region XX Tournament; tip- off is scheduled for 4pm.

“This is the biggest game of the year for us and the best team in the region, nationally ranked CC Beaver County is in front of us.” Said Coach Gibson, “Our real opponent this year has been ourselves, we need to play with a sense of urgency and compete from the opening tip, not after we fall behind. We have the talent to win, but we are truly down to one and done. I hope the guys step up because they truly are a good group of sophomores, and with the support of our freshmen, a team that should continue their career with a national tournament appearance.”

The winner will move on to the Championship game Sunday, March 2’nd at 2pm and play the winner of College of Southern Maryland / CCBC Dundalk.

Let’s Go Lakers!
