Rock Valley College hosted a celebration ceremony on campus to honor the men's basketball program on the heels of their 2016 national championship.
Craig Doty's Golden Eagles won the national tournament for the second time in the last three years, with a national runner-up finish sandwiched in between.
The ceremony was part of a big day for the men's hoops program, as it received two major accolades on the national junior college level. Doty was named the JUCO Division III National Coach of the Year, while Jefferson graduate L.T. Davis of Rockford was named the JUCO Division III National Player of the Year. He was also named MVP of the national tournament following RVC's first-place finish.
