Success has not only come to the Pride on the court, but in the classroom as well.  8 of the 15 team members earned over a 3.00 GPA for the Fall Quarter with Starting Point Guard Pat Crawford (6-1/Centerville H.S.) topping off with a perfect 4.00.

The Sinclair will continue conference play this Saturday as the Pride travel to Columbus State for a 3pm match up.
