MINERAL AREA COLLEGE

Bob Sechrest Classic

This year marks the 4th year of the Annual Bob Sechrest Classic.  It is an early season Junior College Classic that is played on the campus of Mineral Area College.  This tournament replaces the Rosener's Classic that ran for 23 years at MAC.  The Classic features a four team field, and has been re-named to honor the legendary MAC Cardinals Head Coach.  Bob Sechrest won over 450 games in his 24 year stay as the Head Basketball Coach at Mineral Area College.    

There are four very good teams participating in this years event.  This season's teams include Mineral Area College, # 10 Three Rivers, # 9 Indian Hills, and #19 Wabash Valley.  Indian Hills is the #1 ranked team in the country according to Sporting News.  Three Rivers has a long tradition of success including a National Runner-Up finish in 2010.   Head Coach Dan Sparks leads the Wabash Valley Warriors into town this year after coming off a 27-5 season last year where they advanced to the NJCAA National Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas.
