After a 1 - 4 start to the 2010 - 2011 Cascade Conference schedule, things were looking dire for the Warner Pacific men’s basketball team. Then the team rallied and won 11 out of its remaining 13 conference games to finish with a regular season record of 12 - 6 and a third place finish in the conference standings. It was good enough for one of the last remaining at-large bids to the 2011 men’s NAIA Division II Tournament, held March 10 - 15 at The College of the Ozarks, located near Branson, Mo. It was the sixth consecutive year the men’s team had gone to the tournament.
In the opening round game, the Knights upset eleventh-seeded Northwest College (Iowa) 94 - 83 on March 10, but lost to McPherson College (Kan.) 58 to 77 in the second round the next day.
For his regular season efforts, senior Webster Moreland ’11 (pictured) was voted First Team All-Cascade Conference and NAIA Second Team All- American. The forward from Fairfield, Calif. led the Knights with 16 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.
