Southern Utah Looks Forward By Looking Back

As Southern Utah embarks on its final season as a member of the Summit League (in preparation for its entrance into the Big Sky Conference in 2012-13, here is a nice reflection on the memories for the T-Birds in the Summit, because you can't know where you're going until you know where you've been.

The glory moment for men's basketball at Southern Utah came with its Mid-Con championship in 2001. The T-Birds finished that year with a 25-6 record and got a bit of revenge by beating Valparaiso 62-59 in the tournament final in Fort Wayne, Ind., after losing to the Crusaders in the title game the season before.

SUU went on to the NCAA Tournament and nearly beat Boston College in a 3-14 first-round match-up.
