Tuesday, March 09, 2010
Men's basketball season comes to an end.

The Laramie County Community College men's basketball team made a great run with 12 straight wins and no losses in the month of February. The win streak came to an end on March 8 with a loss to the No. 22 nationally ranked North Platte Community College in the Region IX semifinal (69-77). LCCC was behind 32-41 at halftime. In the second half, the Golden Eagles came out firing and cut the lead to 56-58. Though LCCC outscored North Platte in the second half (37-36), it wasn’t enough for the Eagles to catch up.

This is the best season the Golden Eagles have had since bringing back athletics to LCCC in 2002. The Golden Eagles finish the season with a 22-11 overall record.
