The men’s basketball team at TJC is headed for nationals after defeating San Jacinto 72-65 in the final round of the Region 14 Basketball Championships in Jacksonville.

They faced an uphill battle as they were ranked as the No. 7 seed prior to regionals. On Tuesday, they defeated Lee College 90-76. They beat Trinity Valley 81-65 on Thursday. On Friday their opponent (Navarro) was forced to forfeit after they had played an ineligible player during the season.
