Men’s Basketball Wins Sunshine State Conference Title! White-Out Regular Season Finale vs. Eckerd on Wednesday

SAINT LEO, Fla. - The 20th-ranked Saint Leo men's basketball team won at least a share of the 2013 Sunshine State Conference Championship on Saturday when the Lions defeated Rollins College 76-60 in Winter Park.  A loss by Florida Southern that same day guaranteed the Lions no worse than a share of the title, but Saint Leo can win the championship outright by beating Eckerd College at home on Wednesday night.

The Lions' résumé this season is impressive and continues to build as we begin to focus on the SSC and NCAA Tournaments.  Here is a small sample of what our student-athletes have accomplished just two years after a 12-16 finish where the Lions won just four conference games:

The regular season wraps up at home on Wednesday.  The men's game is a 'White Out' as we look to claim the SSC title outright with tip-off scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
