After a successful 2017-18 campaign, the Mid Michigan College Lakers Men's Basketball team is ready for another great season in 2018-19. With back to back seasons of qualifying for the postseason after making the jump to NJCAA Division II and the MCCAA, the Lakers are hoping to continue and improve on the streak of success. We urge you to come watch the team in action on the court as Coach House and Coach Ardis build the Lakers on last year's success.
With new faces and returning players, this year's team is looking forward to building on the team's past success.
Laker basketball teams practice and play their home games at Morey Courts in Mt. Pleasant. The men's season will include a full schedule of games against other NJCAA Conference teams as well as Division III JV teams.
