Basketball Defeats Point in Postseason

KINGSPORT, TN -The Fighting Koalas basketball team entered the post season tournament seeded 8th. Last season Columbia scored its first ever post season win on the road against Bryan College and repeated the performance this morning as they defeated the Point University Skyhawks 79-72 in the first round of the AAC 2013 post season.

The Fighting Koalas made a huge push to come back in the final minutes of the game lead by senior Nikki Craig. In the first half alone Craig had posted 23 of her 27 points and pushed her team to take the lead with only 2 minutes left in the second half.  The Fighting Koalas go on to face no. 1 Milligan College tomorrow in the first round of the AAC conference tournament as they look to try and pull a big upset.

The AAC tournament is being held in Kingsport, TN at the city of Kingsport Convention center and all games will be broadcasted via the web on the AAC network sponsored by iHigh.com.
