Dayton, OH - Sinclair Community College has announced the 2014-15 Men's Basketball schedule.
Sinclair is coming off a 21-9 record, its 5th 20 plus win season in the last 7 years and the third seed in the NJCAA District Tournament. The Pride spent 11 weeks during the 2013-14 season ranked in the Top 20 of the NJCAA Division II Men's Basketball Polls topping out with a three week stint as the 4th ranked team in the nation.
This year, Sinclair will play 16 home contests with a number of very challenging road games both non-conference and conference.
An early season match up (November 28th) against Region XII powerhouse Mott CC lurks just eight games into this year's schedule as Sinclair travels to Flint, Michigan for the annual showdown. The Bears have four National Championships over the last 12 years and finished the 2013-14 season 25-6.
Another highlight of the non-conference schedule will come early in December as Sinclair travels to Chapel Hill to take on the University of North Carolina JV Tar Heels in the Dean Smith Center on December 7th. The last meeting, Sinclair knocked off the Tar Heels by two to take a 2-1 lead in the series.
Playing in one of the top Junior College Conferences in the nation, the OCCAC (Ohio Community College Athletic Conference) had four out of the seven institutions ranked in the Top 20 last season. The OCCAC stands as one of the toughest Districts to get out of to advance to the NJCAA Division II Sweet 16 National Tournament.
