The five sophomores helped the Mavs to a 45-19 record in the two years they were here. They also led the Mavs to a 27-9 mark in conference play, a Region II championship game appearance and a final NJCAA national ranking of #25 in the nation. This was highlighted by a 26-7 mark this past season.
"I'm a so proud of this sophomore group," said head men's basketball coach Donnie Jackson. "They bought into the program as soon as they stepped on campus and their leadership will definitely be missed. More importantly, I am proud of all five of the sophs getting an opportunity to get their education paid for and to continue their education to get their four-year degree. This was a special group and they will be great ambassadors for Northern Oklahoma College."
