(Notre Dame, IN)  The Holy Cross Men's Basketball Team had it's best season ever under second year Head Coach Bob Schermerhorn.
They finished the season 14-17 which was the highest win total ever by ten wins for a season in the history of Men's Basketball.  They also beat crosstown rival IUSB twice which was the first for the program as well.
They finished fourth place in the conference which was the best finish ever, and they were the first team to host a postseason game in the history of athletics at Holy Cross.  They also won their first ever postseason win in the CCAC Tournament by beating Trinity Christian 78-76 in overtime. 
Junior Yama Kader (Mission Viejo, CA), and Senior Taylor Williams (South Bend, IN) earned First Team All CCAC Division II. Kader finished in the top ten in three statistical categories of the CCAC. He was second in scoring averaging 17.4 points per game. He was second in three pointers made with seventy four, and averaged 2.4 three pointers a game in conference. He was sixth in the conference in free throw percentage making seventy four percent of his shots at the charity stripe. Kader was also twelfth in three point percentage with a .357 mark in the CCAC.
Williams finished the season first in rebounds per game with ten, and first in blocks with fifty on the season and averaged 1.8 blocks per game. He also finished twelfth in the CCAC in points per game with 12.1.
This is Kader's first honor from the CCAC, and Williams earned Second Team All CCAC last year.
"I can't put into words how proud I am of the boys this year.  This truly was a fantastic year for the boys.  After only winning four games the previous year, and to win fourteen and a tournament game speaks volumes to the amount of work they put in to get the results they did this season," said Head Coach Bob Schermerhorn.
