The Iowa Lakes Community College Men’s Basketball team, coming off of a 26-8 record last season, have earned the 6th rank in the NJCAA Div. II top 20 coaches’ preseason poll that came out on Oct. 29.
“It’s an honor for our team,” Head Coach Troy Larson stated when asked about the rankings. “We have worked very hard as a program and our expectation is stay ranked in the national polls.”
The Lakers, led by four returners, open their season at home on Monday, Nov. 4 against Northwestern JV.
“Our sophomores Deondre Parks, Tate Harmon, Diamonte McKinnley, and Colton Neff have been providing great leadership during preseason,” Larson said. “We have been working hard in practice and are anxious for the season to begin.”
The women’s tip is at 5:30 p.m. with the men following at 7:30 p.m. in the Laker gymnasium on the Estherville campus.
