Cyclones basketball ends, spring sports begin

The Cyclones are transitioning from winter to spring. Basketball ended with championships, and the spring teams are facing some new beginnings.

Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams finished their seasons in the NJCAA Region IV playoffs with each earning a championship in the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference. The women’s team shared the title with Oakton Community College.

Both the softball and baseball teams are in spring training this week. The men are in Harrison, Arkansas, while the women are in St. Louis, Missouri.

Both the baseball and men’s tennis teams have new coaches this year—Mike Kane and Robert Gates, respectively.

Throughout the spring season, some of the home games/matches will be broadcast live online. Stay tuned for those dates.

Cyclones celebrate All-Decade Team

They came from around Illinois. There was even one out-of-stater and two who had to coach a basketball game later that night, but nearly 40 Cyclone men's basketball alumni and former coaches flocked to the Cyclone Center Jan. 17 to celebrate the college’s All-Decade Team.

At halftime of the men’s basketball game that night, Cyclones athletic director Bill Finn announced the men’s basketball All-Decade Team, which included players from 1979 to 2010. Eighty-two players made the list comprised by Finn, who coached the men’s team for 22 years. With the assistance of Skip Dorn, his assistant coach during his tenure, he announced all the alumni (some by game nicknames) in attendance and had them line the court while praising the basketball program.

“I’m honoring the top players, and I’m proud of all of you. Over the years we’ve won over 700 victories, had four Final Fours and a runners-up appearance. We’re known as a traditional national power. I know I was tough to play for, but it’s nice to see you guys now, all grown up,” Finn said at the brief ceremony. “We loved the G Building, but we love this new building. It’s the college you helped build. We’ve had good times and bad times. I’m proud.”

After a group photo, all the alumni and their families congregated and reconnected at a reception.
