Big Sky Champs!

THE GREATEST MOMENT in Portland State men's basketball history took place March 12, when the Vikings defeated Northern Arizona, 67-51, in the Big Sky Conference Championship game at the Rose Garden Arena.

The Vikings, who were also Big Sky regular season champions, earned a first-ever berth in the men's NCAA Division I basketball championship in Omaha, Nebraska. They lost to the eventual 2008 National Champion, Kansas, 85-61, but the Viks finished with a 23-10 record--the best in school history.

All this winning earned head coach Ken Bone the 2007-08 Big Sky Conference Men's Basketball Coach of the Year, and Jeremiah Dominguez Player of the Year.
