      The Mott Bears have made basketball history, and Mott Community College is inviting the entire community to a public celebration in honor of the champions.

MCC now holds more national championships than any other NJCAA Division II men's basketball program.

      MCC's National Championship Community Celebration is scheduled for 5:30 to 7 pm, Wednesday, April 4, 2012 at Ballenger Field House on the main campus of Mott Community College, 1401 East Court St. in Flint. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

      Free commemorative national championship posters will be available. Championship T-shirts and hats will be available for purchase or to order. In addition, coaches and members of the team will be on hand to greet fans.

      "We are excited to be able to honor our team," said MCC Men's Basketball Coach Steve Schmidt. "We have tremendous support from our entire college staff and unbelievable support from our community. This event will give us the opportunity to share our championship with everyone who has supported us. The Mott Bears are proud to be National Champions!"
