Texas D-1 Ambassador Harris Davee Wins National Championship

Texas D-1 Ambassador Class of 2007 redshirt Freshman Harris Davee of Austin Lake Travis won a National Championship this March as part of the Richland Junior College (TX) Division III Junior College basketball team.
Davee was one of our hardest working players over the years and without a doubt was one of our toughest defenders. A physical, hardnosed guard who was unselfish and hardnosed. Congratulations to Harris and his Family!
Richland won the 2009 Division III NJCAA National Championship on March 14, in New York. They beat No. 7-ranked Mass Bay Community College 67-47, No.2-ranked Hudson Valley Community College 59-57, and finally No.1-ranked Minneapolis Community College 58-57 to take the Title.
Throughout the tournament Richland College played 12-13 guys a game while the Thunderducks opponents played only eight to nine. That made the difference said Coach Jon Felment, and when asked if he could sum up this team and season he added, "Four words...... one family, one goal." "We were very talented. We had good guards and good posts. The biggest thing is how close the boys were"
