The 1971-72 Westmont men’s basketball team

Westmont celebrates one of its all-time great teams at halftime of the men’s basketball game Saturday, February 4. The 1971-72 men’s basketball team beat NCAA DI No. 14 Hawaii a day after the death of the Warriors’ head coach Tom Byron following a battle with cancer. The club would go on to win the NAIA DIII Championship and make a run to the quarterfinals of the NAIA National Championship. 

No. 5 Westmont women’s basketball will tip off against The Master’s at 2 pm and the men will start at 4 pm. In a halftime ceremony during the men’s contest, several members of the 1971-1972 men’s basketball team will be honored. 

Following the conclusion of the men’s game, at approximately 6:30 pm, a postgame reception will take place next door in Winter Hall, featuring a Q&A with members of the 1971-72 team.

All are welcome to attend the game and the postgame reception.
