An amazing run by the men’s basketball team was topped off by the NAIA announcements of All-American and All-Tournament Honors Thursday. Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) had some familiar faces on the list. Joshua Kashila adds NAIA First Team All-American to his lengthy list of his accomplishments, that incudes Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) Player of the Year and First Team All-Conference. Kashila finished a career season with leading the Lions to a semifinal’s appearance, their first since 2013. Joel Polius was dominant in the paint all season but he turned it up a notch during postseason play, highlighted by his 27-point, 12 rebound game against Carroll College in the quarterfinals; his performance in the postseason earned him a spot on the All-Tournament team. Polius also received the honors of being named NAIA Third Team All-American; he has made an immediate impact on and off the floor for the Lions that includes accolades of Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC) Newcomer of the Year, First Team All-Conference and NCCAA Scholar Athlete. The duo between Kashila and Polius was dominant and fun to watch throughout the season; although the National Championship run came up short, both athletes are proven winners.
