CHICKASHA – USAO’s Athletic Hall of Fame more than doubled on Saturday as USAO inducted the entire 2002 NAIA Men’s Basketball National Championship team into its Athletic Hall of Fame.

“For me, it was important for the whole team because it’s always going to be a team effort,” said Brisco McPherson, head coach and athletic director. “To get there and not win it in 2001, and then come back the next year and win it is just a supreme effort by the entire team. I thought it was a special moment for all of them.”
