Mountain East Conference: Concord wins men's title

Concord became the third different men's title winner of the MEC Tournament.

The Concord Mt. Lions came away with the championship trophy of the third annual Mountain East Conference Men's Basketball Tournament.

They did so in a tournament, which featured the No. 1 (West Liberty), No. 2 (Wheeling Jesuit) and No. 5 (Fairmont State) teams in the country.

The Mt. Lions knocked off Notre Dame College, 70-64, on Sunday at the Charleston Civic Center Coliseum to win the crown.

The win catapults the Mt. Lions into the NCAA Division II Atlantic Regional, which begins Saturday in Wheeling.

Concord upended the University of Charleston and West Liberty on its way to a first-ever tournament crown.

The MEC has had a different men's champ in its three years of existence with Concord joining Charleston and Glenville.
