“First and foremost I’m thankful for the opportunity to coach these amazing young women. These young ladies were fantastic and did everything we asked on and off the court. With the young team that we have, expect to see us back in the SIAC championship again next year because we aren’t going anywhere. We thank you for all of the support and please bring it back next year.” said Coach, Pete Asmond.
The Miles College Men’s basketball went up against Lane College defeating them 60-46 to bring home the SIAC Championship.

“This win is validation. The men worked extremely hard and the hard work paid off. Our main goal for the season was to get the point we are at now. We set the goal and we accomplished it, together. I know the men will continue to make us proud and we are so thankful for the support we’re receiving from everyone.” said Coach Fred Watson
