NJCAA brackets 2017:   Div.I   Div.II   Div.III
North Lake upsets its way to DIII championship - Mar 18, 2017

The North Lake Community College men's basketball coach has the name befitting of a country western music legend. But Tim McGraw made a little history for himself on the hardwood in Rochester on Saturday night. McGraw guided fifth-seeded North Lake past N. 2 Elgin Community College 66-56 in title game of the Division III NJCAA National Championships at Rochester Community and Technical College. In doing so, McGraw became the first men's basketball community college coach to win three national titles at the non-scholarship level. "It's very humbling, it really is because I've had great kids," McGraw said. "We've had a lot of other teams that didn't even get here and I feel bad for some of those other kids. But these kids had to overcome adversity. They worked hard for this." Like Elgin, North Land had to navigate through the eight-team field with a somewhat limited roster. North Land freshman guard Deanthony Owens (F), part of team's all-Texas squad, was coming off an injury and was not at full strength. "He's still only about 80 percent," McGraw said. With Owens limited, 6-foot freshman guard Ayo Dada (G) stepped up. He scored 16 points and made 4 of 8 3-pointers in the title game to lead the Blazers. Dada was named the MVP of the tournament. "It feels great, we worked hard," Dada said. "This was our goal all season." North Lake entered the tournament not only as the No. 5 seed, but it had a modest 19-11 record. McGraw that was in part due to playing 11 scholarship teams during the season. The Blazers also play in the tough six-team Metro Athletic League, will all squads located in the Dallas area. "That's probably why we had so much confidence because of all the scholarship schools we played," McGraw said. McGraw has coached at North Land for 20 seasons. This is his fifth time taking the Blazers to the national tournament and he also won championships in 2006 and 2008. McGraw took advantage some of his former players for motivation heading into this year's three-day event. "We had guys from the previous championships come in and talk to the team last week," he said. "Those guys talked about what it took." The current players took the advise and rattled off three straight wins, topping No. 1 Anoka-Ramsey from Minnesota in the process, to win the title and finish 22-11. "I know he's happy," Dada said of McGraw winning another title. "He deserves it big-time; he's a great coach." As for the game, North Lake played a tough hybrid man-to-man/zone defense that gave Elgin (31-6) fits. Elgin shot just 29 percent from the floor and had a seven-minute scoring drought at one point in the second half. "We don't see a lot of zone where we're from," said Elgin coach Reed Nosbisch of his Illinois-based team. "That caused a lot of problems." North Land went on a 14-0 run in that span to open up a 52-29 lead. Elgin made a run and got within nine and then missed a 3-pointer with 3:00 left. It got within eight with 28 seconds left before the Blazers got the game's final bucket. "We just couldn't shoot the ball," Nosbisch said. ".... I thought we just couldn't get things going." Elgin was also without leading scorer Chris Benjamin (G), who was hurt in a game prior to the tournament and didn't play on the national stage. This was the first time the Division III NJCAA men's tournament was held in Rochester. The city has hosted the women's tournament in the past. Next year the men's event moves back to New York, and then it will return to Rochester in 2019 before going up for bid again.
