Sponsors needed for championship basketball rings
Kilgore College will honor this year’s men’s basketball team with championship rings, but is looking for sponsors to offset the cost of the hardware.
The rings will celebrate this year’s team that had the best men’s basketball season in 55 years at the college, winning the regional regular-season championship and making it to the Sweet Sixteen in the NJCAA National Tournament.
“We finished ranked No. 15 in the nation,” said Jimmy Rieves, athletic director. “These student athletes deserve rings for winning the region and for being outstanding representatives on and off the court on the national stage.”
The college is asking for potential donors to “sponsor a Ranger” for $100 each.
