"Can't miss" Cougars roar into 2011

Freshman guard Wendell Crowder

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.
The Cougars play in the Southwell Complex on the main campus of Columbia College, located at the intersection of Rangeline and Rogers streets. Rangeline is currently being renovated and is closed to all traffic. Parking is available behind the complex; from Rogers Street, turn north on Nichols Street, east on Hinkson Street and north again on Fay Street. The parking lot is just to the west across the railroad tracks.

Tickets prices are only $8 for adults and $5 for students with a valid student ID.
