Cougars Head John Hurley earned his 800th career win (high school and college) on Saturday. This is in addition to earning his 600th college career win this season.

"Penn State DuBois was an excellent team, but our players refused to lose," said Hurley. "The Cougars were down 40-31 at the half and pulled it out in the second half. They were the best team we played all year long. It was a great experience for our players – a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We were so pleased and so excited that we won the national championship."

The Cougar team celebrates earning its title.

 

The Cougars went into the tournament as the No. 1 seed. This is the college’s third year as a USCAA member. The Cougars were runners-up in the 2006 USCAA Basketball Tournament.
