The LaGrange men's basketball team returned Sunday night to a campus celebration after their 94-84 win over Huntingdon in the championship game of the USA South Tournament in Maryville, Tenn.
The victory secured a first ever berth in the upcoming NCAA Division III Tournament. The Panthers will learn their destination in the first two rounds of the tournament on Monday. There will be more information coming about the selection show.
The conference tournament championship is the first for the men's program since the 1974-75 season. It is also the school's first USA South tournament championship since joining the conference last year.
