The MacMurray College men’s basketball team are headed to the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference basketball tournament, which begins Thursday evening in Louisville, KY.
Students, faculty, staff and friends of the college gathered Wednesday in the Wall Gym lobby, to cheer on as the team bus leaves for the tournament.
Among the area players on the team are Hunter Sutton and Dylan Burton, both of Girard; Cole Busch of Auburn; Clayton Whitlock of Springfield; Dylan Guthrie and Brady Slagle of Winchester and Kollin Keltner of Franklin.
The top four teams in the conference compete in the tournament, with the winner of Saturday's championship game going to the first round of the NCAA Division III basketball tournament the following weekend. Each year, the SLIAC tournament is hosted by the conference leader, which this year is Spalding University, in Louisville.
