After winning the SUNYAC regular season championship against Geneseo, the Oswego State men’s basketball team added another trophy to the case. The Lakers outlasted No. 3 Brockport in the 2019 SUNYAC Championship title game.
It is the fourth postseason conference crown the Lakers have won in the last eight seasons. With the victory, Oswego secured the SUNYAC’s automatic berth to the NCAA Championship, which was its sixth all-time appearance, coming all in the last nine years.
In the first round of NCAA action, the team defeated Salem State University at Laker Hall, advancing to the second round. In a thrilling overtime win over Baldwin Wallace University, the Lakers secured a spot in the Sweet 16 for the second time in four seasons.
The team traveled to Illinois to face No. 22 Marietta College on March 8, and ended their run with a 61-to-78 loss. The loss closed the chapter on a historic season with a match of the furthest postseason push in the program’s history (2015-16 – Sweet 16).
