Video captures Lions championship season

Highlights of big plays and big dunks in big games 

WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  The recently produced video that chronicles the highlights of the Southwestern Assemblies of God University men’s basketball season, in which they advanced to the national championship game, can now be viewed on-line at your convenience.

It includes special moments during the team’s first-ever Red River Athletic Conference championship, big plays in big games all the way to the nationally televised semi-final (ESPN) and finals (CBS) of the NAIA tournament in Kansas City, Missouri.

Watch Head Coach Donnie Bostwick describe the theme that propelled the Lions to a 33-5 record and a No. 2 ranking at the end of the season.

The team bus received an escort by Ellis County sheriffs as they returned home from KC, which is also captured on film.

View their bus exit and post-trip comments by Coach Bostwick as well as Duce Ward presenting the Runner-Up trophy to President Kermit Bridges.
