Trolls men miss out on CCAC tourney
Even after last week’s 77-73 loss to Judson University, there was hope for Trinity Christian College’s men’s basketball team.
The Trolls needed to beat St. Xavier University, the powerhouse from Chicago’s Mount Greenwood neighborhood, to gain the final berth in this week’s Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament. It was not to be, however.
The Trolls played a tremendous defensive game on Saturday, but failed to get the offense they needed, thanks to the defense played by the NAIA Division II No. 7-ranked Cougars. The outcome, a 70-62 victory for SXU, ended Trinity’s season at 9-21 overall, 5-14 in league play.
