It has been 30 years since a Motlow College men’s basketball team entered the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association/National Junior College Athletic Association Region VII Tournament as the defending champion. This year’s Bucks carry that banner.
Although the head coach and all the players at Motlow are different this year than they were last year, the title of defending champion still applies. Based on the performance of this year’s squad, it is unwise to discount the possibility that the Bucks have the potential to make a return trip to the NJCAA Tournament, scheduled for Mar. 17-22 in Hutchinson, Kan.
Motlow (13-13, 8-10) closed out its regular season with a 99-66 rout of Dyersburg State last Tuesday in Dyersburg. Dequon Miller led Motlow with 25 points and nine assists. Emmanuel Ezoua scored 15 and pulled down six rebounds. Jordan Riley scored 14 with seven boards, Kytrel Williams had 13 points and four assists and Joshua Stroud scored 13 with four rebounds.
In order to make that return trip to the national tournament, the Bucks must win the upcoming TCCAA/Region VII Tournament, which begins on Tuesday, Mar. 4 at Roane State Community College in Harriman, Tenn. The Bucks enter as the No. 4 seed and will face No. 5 Cleveland State on Wednesday, Mar. 5 at 3 p.m.
