Men's basketball wins second consecutive CCIW conference tournament title

Men’s basketball won their second consecutive CCIW conference tournament last night as they defeated Illinois Wesleyan on Friday and Elmhurst on Saturday at the Carver Center.
After the Vikings overtime win against Wesleyan on Friday, they had less than 24 hours to get recharged for the game against Elmhurst.
Yet the Vikings made a strong start to their game, having both a strong offense with a 39-19 point lead over Elmhurst, but also a strong defense as they forced 17 turnovers by Elmhurst.
Although Elmhurst out scored the Vikings on the second by four points, the Vikings were able to win by a double-digit margin and repeat as consecutive conference champions.
The Vikings will continue on to the Division III National Tournament. The first round will begin on March 3 and March 4.
