CIRCLEVILLE, OH – Ohio Christian University Men's Basketball has officially released their schedule for the 2016-17 season.
The men's program finished their first season in the NAIA last year with a record of 24-10 and look to improve on that this coming season. A large addition to the team came this summer with the signing of local standout athlete Michael Camp. Camp attended Circleville High School and signed with the team in late Spring. To add to that, four seniors, including 2016-16 leading scorer Marquis Jackson, will be returning to lead the squad. OCU will now be competing in the newly named RSC (River States Conference) after being known as the KIAC for the past 100 years.
"We are very excited about this upcoming season. We have a lot of returners with our seniors Marquis, Nic, Gary, and Claude leading the way. We were able to schedule some of the top teams in the nation for the year as well. It will be a great challenge for our program, and we are excited about the opportunities ahead," said Coach Stockman.
The Trailblazers will begin their season at home on October 29 against Shawnee State University at 7:30 PM. The regular season will conclude with a matchup against Indiana University East on February 18 for the Trailblazer's Senior Night
