The Chargers then defeated Southern Idaho College, 67-66 with a last second three pointer by Montrel Goldston.

Finally, Chargers defeated Hutchinson Community College, 64-59.

In the Final Four round the Chargers lost in overtime to Northwest Florida State College, 105-103.

“We are very happy with how far our team made it this year,” said Phil Gaffney, athletics director and men’s head basketball coach.

He continued, “I think we had a shot at winning the championship because the team that won was the team that beat us in overtime in the Final Four.”

A reception honoring the 2014-15 Chargers and their run to the NJCAA Final Four was held in the Floyd campus gym on April 15.
Don Green, president of GHC, Phil Gaffney, athletics director and men’s head basketball coach, and David Mathis, assistant athletics director, addressed the large crowd.
