Team awaits USCAA Tournament bids on Tuesday


For the seventh time in 10 seasons, the Berkeley College Men’s Basketball team has won the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship, defeating the defending champion Bears of St. Joseph’s College by a score of 91-82 on Sunday, February 22, at the Albert M. White Gymnasium in Albany, NY. The No. 1-seeded Knights were named regular-season champions earlier in the week, with a perfect 6-0 record. 

“Prior to the start of the season, this team had a number of goals that it wanted to achieve, and capturing a Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title was one of them,” said Chris Christiansen, Berkeley College Head Coach, Men’s Basketball. “When you have a group of student-athletes who have the same focus and determination, and who truly enjoy playing for one another, you have a great chance of being successful.” 

Both the Berkeley College Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams were selected to compete in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association National Basketball Tournament, which will be hosted by Penn State Fayette in March.
