Grace Bible College is hosting a celebration at noon Monday for its men’s basketball team, which returned Sunday from Springfield, Mo., after winning the National Christian College Athletic Association Division II national championship for the third straight year.
The event, which will include cake and guest speakers, will take place in the school cafeteria between classes.
The top-ranked Tigers defeated Valley Forge Christian College (Pa.) 76-56 on Saturday night in the NCCAA title game.
Former Wyoming Park standout Allen Durham had 26 points and 11 rebounds for Grace, which hasn’t lost to a NCCAA Division II team in three seasons.
“It will be a smaller celebration, but the whole team will be there and I think ‘back-to-back-to-back’ T-shirts are being printed up,” Grace coach Gary Bailey said. “We’re going to enjoy it.”
