The C of I men’s basketball team hosted Oregon Tech in a Cascade Conference Tournament opener Tuesday night inside J.A. Albertson Activities Center. The Yotes came out aggressive as expected, but a few hiccups along the way—including poor free throw shooting and hot Oregon Tech shot making—kept the game close into the final minutes. In the end, the No. 6-ranked Yotes found enough juice to pull out a 71-64 victory and advance to the semifinals.

The award is based on the academic achievement of fraternity members as well as their campus and community involvement.
