Harding: "Best Road Trip Destination in College Basketball"
Intersport announced Feb. 25 that Harding University had won the title of "Best Road Trip Destination in College Basketball presented by Enterprise Rent-A-Car." CBS came March 2 to film the Rhodes Rowdies in action at Harding's home games against SE Oklahoma.
- Students, faculty and staff picked up tickets from the GAC a few days before game. The games completely sold out as Men's Basketball Coach Jeff Morgan promised to give away a set of tickets to the Final Four to two lucky Harding students. The day of the game, support flooded in from the Harding community. Students on campus were excited as well as alumni from all around the country.
- A line began to form outside of the Rhodes about 11 a.m. as students' anticipation grew as the last home games of the season approached.
- The fans who helped to fill the Rhodes were not disappointed with the outcome of the afternoon. The Lady Bison beat SE Oklahoma 83-69 and the Bison defeated SE Oklahoma 85-58. Seniors Katie Dunn, Zach Roddenberry, Bradley Spencer, Adam Sterrenberg and Matt Walters received recognition for the efforts they have added to the team's success over the years. Senior Zach Roddenberry passed the 1,000 point mark for his college basketball career and CBS was there to witness it all for a special feature that is scheduled to show April 6.
