The men’s varsity basketball team at Lyndon B. Johnson Job Corps took first place in the Smoky Mountain Conference Basketball Tournament.
The men had a great season with no double losses to any team in the conference. Despite being ranked third going into the tournament, the team was seen as a major contender.
There were some concerns with a few seasoned players being lost to graduation just before the tournament, but new faces stepped up to the challenge.
Coach Bucholz said, “I am very proud of how the team performed both on and off the court.
