Jackets Lack Focus in Loss to Ashland
Cedarville men’s basketball coach Pat Estepp said he wasn’t happy with his team’s focus and energy Saturday night, as the team lost its first game of the season, 60-75, against Ashland in their second game of the Callan Classic.
Less than 24 hours removed from scoring 90 points in their first game of the season, the Yellow Jackets struggled to get going in the first half, scoring only 21 points and headed into the half down 15.
“We really weren’t locked in and ready to play at ...
Jackets Hold Off Panthers in Season Opener
1,375 pajama-clad fans packed into the Callan Athletic Center Friday night to watch the Cedarville men’s basketball team win its home opener against Ohio Dominican in a close game, 90-86.
Due to the G-MAC volleyball tournament, the game tipped off at 11:00 p.m. and head coach Pat Estepp made it a pajama night. The fans were on their feet for most of the game, only sitting down during timeouts.
Estepp said the crowd had a big part in the win.
“The crowd was phenomenal,” he said. ...
Cedarville Freshmen Abound on Basketball Teams
Freshman year is a time when memories are made: walking into the wrong room on the first day of classes, falling in love with a mysterious stranger, feeling the adrenaline rush as one gets back to the dorm two minutes after curfew, the list can go on. But year one is also a time of transition from high school to college, and some people handle the change more smoothly than others.
This transition is magnified in the collegiate sports world. Freshman athletes have to adapt to competition at ...
Moonlight Madness Previews Upcoming Basketball Season
Cedarville got a small taste of the upcoming basketball season Saturday night with Moonlight Madness.
The highlight of the night was the dunk exhibition. Instead of a contest like in years past, the audience was treated to a showcase of Cedarville’s best dunkers. Sophomore forward and former junior varsity player Josh Paul leapt over a friend on his way to a dunk, and sophomore forward Easton Bazzoli took a pass off the side of the backboard and slammed it in.
But sophomore guard Austin ...
Stepping Up Their Game: JV to Varsity
The chasm between JV and varsity sports is much greater at the collegiate level than in high school. It takes more than determination, sacrifice, time and athleticism, although it still requires all of these elements, to move from junior varsity to varsity in college. It takes something more.
Ethan Lee, a senior finance major and forward on the soccer team, is another athlete who made his way from JV to varsity.
During his freshman year at Delaware’s Seaford High, Lee worked his way ...
Yellow Jackets Blow Out Ohio Valley
The last time the Cedarville men’s basketball team played Ohio Valley, it took overtime for the Yellow Jackets to finally defeat the Scots. Tonight was quite the opposite. The Yellow Jackets dominated from start to finish in a 87-65 blowout.

Visiting Marauders Defeat Yellow Jackets

Cedarville Falls Short On World Record Atempt
A Cedarville org attempted a world record Saturday night.
The record was for the world’s largest knockout game, a record set by Iowa State at 571 people. Cedarville’s knockout game reached 291 people.
Delta Alpha Epsilon, an alumni-based org on campus, organized the game to raise money for their spring break MIS trip to Eleuthra, a small island in the Bahamas. On the MIS trip, they will be working with Ryan and Emily Flunker, who are Cedarville alumni and administrators at Windermere High ...
