Augie Men Start Postseason Play
It was an exciting finish to the regular season at the Elmen Center this past weekend. Winona was in town and the game came down to a last second shot. With time running out Winona through 3 players at Cameron McCaffery (rightfully so) but Cam hit Alex Richter in the corner who drained a 3.
College basketball is exciting on any level, and when you get an exciting finish to a game it makes it that much better!
