College of Idaho survives another scare, wins NAIA hoops title

The College of Idaho narrowly escaped a scare, eventually prevailing to capture the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Basketball Championship.

In a contest that featured difficult and technical play, the Yotes showed their mettle, overcoming a late game deficit to secure the title.

The Yotes, who had entered the tournament as the top seed, found themselves in a precarious position late in the game. Trailing by three with less than 20 seconds remaining, the Yotes had to make a play.

Fortunately, forward Collin Carlson stepped up to the challenge, hitting a long three-pointer to tie the game and send it into overtime.

In the extra period, the Yotes maintained their composure, outscoring their opponents by eight points to secure the victory.

The win marked the school’s first ever championship title in the NAIA, a feat that was celebrated by the entire College of Idaho community.

The team’s head coach, Scott Garson, expressed his delight at the outcome. “It’s an incredible feeling,” he said. “We knew we had a chance to make history, and that’s exactly what we did.”

The win was a testament to the team’s resilience and determination, traits that will serve them well as they move forward in their athletic careers.

For now, however, the Yotes can simply revel in the glory of their hard-fought victory, and the knowledge that they are the national champions.
