Cal Poly to honor men’s basktball team

The party hasn’t ended yet for the Cal Poly Pomona men’s basketball team which capped off the best season in school history with its first NCAA Division II national championship.

The school will be holding a “Welcome Home” celebration to honor the team at noon on Tuesday in the school’s quad near the heart of campus. It is open to the public. National championship T-shirts will be on sale for $15.

The Broncos, coached by Greg Kamansky defeated No. 2 Indiana, (Penn.) 65-53 in the nationally-televised championship game on Saturday and returned on Sunday – a tired but happy bunch.
The 28-6 record is the best in school history. The Broncos also finished as the NCAA’s top scoring defense at 56.2 points a game and ranked among the top 10 in field goal percentage at 50.4 percent.

One television station was on campus today and at least one more is expected tomorrow.
