Men's basketball team begins New Year with three home games in a week.
The Columbia College men’s basketball team started the season with a 91-26 drubbing of Concordia Seminary (Mo.) College and hasn’t slowed down since. In one recent game, the Cougars shot 85 percent from the field in the second half, spurring a Columbia (Mo.) Daily Tribune writer to call them the "can't miss Cougars."
This is not the team that made the NAIA championship two seasons ago and the semi-finals last year.
They may be even better, according to Coach Bob Burchard.
But don't take our word for it. Ring in the new year with dogged Cougars defense and passionate offense in three upcoming home games:
- Friday, Dec. 31, Kansas Wesleyan University, 8 p.m.
- Saturday, Jan. 1, Baker (Kan.) University, 8 p.m.
- Thursday, Jan. 6, Williams Baptist (Ark.) College, 7:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, Jan. 18, Hannibal-LaGrange (Mo.) College, 7:30 p.m.
Tickets prices are only $8 for adults and $5 for students with a valid student ID.
