1959-60 Basketball Team

The 1959-60 Westminster College men's basketball squad holds a unique place in the history of Blue Jay basketball. The 1959-60 squad captured the Missouri College Athletic Union title, becoming the first basketball squad to win the MCAU corwn since the 1938-39 team brought home the corwn. Ironically, the 1959-60 title would be the final MCAU title Westminster would win in basketball and would not be until 1985-86 that Blue Jay basketball fans would celebrate another conference championship, when Westminster captured the Ozark Collegiate Conference trophy. The 1959-60 Blue Jays were led by All-MCAU selection Dave Wright and All-MCAU selection Dale Ocheskey. 

Members of the 1959-60 team gather in the Westminster Gym during the 2010 Alumni Weekend.
