There is a championship team in town in the Men’s Division 1 of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). That would happen to be the Paul Quinn College Tigers, an HBCU, located in Dallas, Texas.
The team competed in Petersburg, VA, and has brought home its third National Championship. The school has been around for 150 years.
The Tigers started the tournament by beating Bluefield State 88-74. They then played Bryant & Stratton and won 80-59. After playing Bryant & Stratton again in the Championship game, the Tigers won 80-69.
The Tigers are coached by Brandon Espinosa, Keldrick McKendrick, and Aaron Espinosa.
“The Tigers wanted to chase excellence both on and off the court and contribute to the community. The second was winning the Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC),” Coach Brandon Espinosa stated.
“My players come from many backgrounds. I wanted them to know that they had the right recipe for success and winning championships. That is if they worked hard. Anything is possible with sacrifice,” he added.
