The men’s basketball team nearly scaled the heights to another national championship in a season highlighted by several notable achievements: The Broncos won their first-ever outright regular season conference title, followed by their first California Collegiate Athletic Association tournament championship.
Overall, the team finished 28-3, matching the record for wins set by the 2009-10 national
championship squad. The Broncos went on a 12-game regular season winning streak that
culminated in a 74-49 thumping of Cal State Monterey Bay during homecoming.
Head Coach Greg Kamansky was named CCAA Coach of the Year, while senior Mitchel Anderson was named All-West Region First Team, and Terrence Drisdom was voted to the Second Team.
After a first-round victory at home against Sonoma State, the Broncos beat San Francisco
State and Chico State to win the CCAA title at Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario. The team beat
Chico State again in the first round of the NCAA tournament, but the Broncos lost to No. 2 Seattle Pacific in the next round.
Still, the future looks promising.
Although the team is losing Anderson and Mohamed Fall, the 2013-14 Broncos’ squad will
feature All-CCAA honorees Drisdom and DeRonn Scott, along with returning starters Bryce Brady and Barry Bell.
