On The Sideline: Cowley Basketball NCJAA Tourney

Good Day Kansas

We had champions on the show! It was my pleasure to interview Tommy DeSalme, the head men’s basketball coach at Cowley College, and Dalen Ridgnal, a Forward for Cowley, about their historic regular season! The men’s basketball team won their first Region VI tournament in 64 years and finished the regular season on a 12 game winning streak!

That historic end to the regular season has earned Cowley College a first round bye in the NJCAA Tournament which will tip off on Monday, April 19th. Cowley will have to wait a day to see who they will compete against on Tuesday, when it plays its first game of the Tournament.

Coach DeSalme joined me to share some insight into how much heart his team has and how that heart, led by the team’s sophomores, carried them to a victory in the Region VI championship game. Winning the Region was one of DeSalme’s goals when he took over as head coach at Cowley, and he will get to proudly display his championship ring for the rest of his life.

We wish Cowley the best of luck in the Tournament to come and congratulate them on an incredible regular season. If you want to stay updated on their scores or any of the action in the Tournament, you can visit: https://www.njcaa.org/sports/mbkb/index
