EMCC Men’s Basketball Team Taking Road Trip to National Championship!

Mar 1, 2012


BANGOR, ME—The Golden Eagle Men are on their way to their first national championship appearance in over ten years. The team including newly appointed All Conference Player Thelbert Green will take on #3 seed Andrews University a week from now in the Penn State Fayette Community Center’s Main Arena.

“Eastern Maine Community College Athletics have seen a major growth in the past 4 years” says Kent Corey, Athletic Director for the Golden Eagles. “The college athletics program at EMCC had an 18 month hiatus in 2008 and only 3 wins in the boy’s first season back on the hardwood, and now 4 short years going to nationals”

The Yankee Small College Conference has ranked the Men’s team #1 nationally for the majority of the season in their conference, as well as having several players named “Player of the Week”.  The boys take the court on Thursday March 8th at noon and all the action can be caught live online at www.theuscaa.com.
