The School of New Resources held a basketball tournament at the Wellness Center that brought together students from different campuses in an event organizers plan to hold every year.

"It was a great experience for our students and a wonderful success," said Dr. Darryl Jones, Dean of the School of New Resources. About 40 students participated in the event Friday, which included a three-on-three tournament refereed by members of the women's basketball team, a free throw shooting contest, and a 3-point contest.

Jones said the tournament grew out of a desire to achieve inter-campus athletic interaction. "It was something different, and the response from everyone who attended was extremely positive," he said.

Dante Noble, Eric Chappelle, and Michael Rodriguez of the John Cardinal O'Connor Campus won the three-on-three tournament. Rodriguez also won the free throw and 3-point competitions.
