Members of Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Ranger men’s basketball team were the guests of Lincoln Elementary School in Alva recently.

Team members, along with head coach Andrew Brown, assistant coach Shane Hansen and graduate assistant Kris Johnson, shared with the fourth and fifth graders information about the Champions of Character program within the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

The young students learned about the program’s five core values – Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Servant Leadership and Sportsmanship.

Following the discussion, the team held a basketball shooting contest where students made baskets and took home Ranger basketballs as their prizes. Team members stayed after the program to autograph the basketballs for the students.

To learn more about the Ranger men’s basketball program or the Champions of Character values, contact Brown at (580) 327-8467 or awbrown@nwosu.edu.
