UCCS to announce 20th anniversary team
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Athletic Department will announce the UCCS Men's Basketball 20th Anniversary Team on Friday.
A first and second team as well as honorable mentions will be announced prior to the men's basketball game between the Mountain Lions and Nebraska-Kearney.
UCCS officially began playing intercollegiate basketball in the 1987-88 season under the name Gold. The nickname was changed to the Mountain Lions prior to the 1999-2000 season.
The top two guards and forwards as well as the top center will be named first team. The second team will represent the next highest vote getters. Honorable mention will be awarded to players who were chosen on at least three ballots.
Players must have played at least two seasons at UCCS to be considered for the ballot. Current sports information director Doug Fitzgerald and former SID Jerry Cross chose the final ballot with input from other current and former members of the Athletic Department.
Ballots were cast by current and former basketball coaches, athletic directors and sports information directors plus selected faculty and administrators who have or had been actively involved with the Athletic Department.
