The Skidmore Thoroughbreds will be returning to compete in the Division 3 men's basketball tournament this Friday. This past weekend, the program clinched their fifth Liberty League title in the last nine years with a 82-66 win over the Hobart Statesmen. This victory was especially exciting for Skidmore fans as this year's team was able to cut down the nets on their home court.

Earlier today, Coach Joe Burke joined Levack and Goz to discuss the program's win and the team's preparation for their opening round NCAA tournament match up. Plus Levack could not resist but to give Goz (a Hobart alum) grief over the Skidmore championship.

As Coach said above, the Thoroughbreds are to tip off against  MIT at 530pm. To follow along with the action on Friday check the Skidmore athletics website below.
