When Lincoln Christian University (LCU) men’s basketball team participated in the 2014 NCCAA Div II Midwest regional tournament February 27-March 1, an awards banquet was held as part of the schedule of events. The awards celebrate excellence among the teams, name players to the all-region team, name the coach-of-the-year, and recognize Academic All-Americans within the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA).
Congratulations, Red Lions!
