“Back to Back” and for the third time in five years Grace takes home the National Championship. The final game was a tight contest throughout with the Tigers trailing for much of the game against Southeastern University. The Tigers pulled out a narrow win 68-65 victory. “This is a great ending to a great season,” said Coach Gary Bailey. “I’m very happy for the kids who worked so hard to get here. We didn’t play our best basketball in this tournament but the guys found a way to dig down for the extra fortitude when they really needed it to win.”
The Tigers finish the 2009-10 season with 15 straight victories and a 28-10 record and they have not lost to a NCCAA II team in two years.
From the coaching staff and players: Thanks to all the loyal fans who supported the team throughout the regular season and the regional and national tournaments. Your faithfulness is appreciated immensely.
