Laker basketball reaching uncharted territory


Oswego, N.Y. – With just six SUNYAC titles to its name and no National Championships, Oswego State Men’s basketball has never been considered a powerhouse in Division Three Men’s Basketball. That was until the Class of 2017 arrived.

With a conference championship in 2015 and a conference finals appearance in 2016, the Lakers are on track to do something no other team has done in school history. That is, if they reach their third straight conference finals game. 

Last year’s team was also the first to make it to the sweet sixteen game in the NCAA tournament.

However, Laker forward Keith Tyson says the ultimate goal is to win it all.

“You wanna get that ring. That’s the big thing,” Tyson said. “We’re working hard. That’s the big thing — stay level headed and keep working.”

This entire three year stretch has been torpedoed by a future Hall of Famer and top ten scorer in Oswego history, Brian Sortino. If Sortino is able to crack the top five, he’d be grateful.
“It would definitely be an honor,” Sortino said. “I mean, there’s been a lot of good guys come out of this school, if it was it would just be great.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
