TRURO – The NSAC Rams will not compete in the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association men’s basketball championship next month in their own gym.
The announcement was made late Sunday night in an email by NSAC Athletic Director Judy Smith following a meeting between herself and the team after the Rams lost 80-51 to the Holland Hurricanes to end their regular season.
The setback left the Rams seventh in the eight-team conference with a 2-19 record.
Smith cited the tough season as a decisive factor.
“Based on our league results, we have not shown that we will be able to compete at the level required of a participant in a National Championship,” the email said.
The vacant spot at the event, which is slated for March 15 to 17, will be filled by the ACAA runner-up. The ACAA championship will be held March 2 to 4 at Holland College.
