The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh basketball programs continue to rewrite history.
Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams earned a spot in the Sweet 16 with two wins each this past weekend in the opening rounds of their respective NCAA Division III Championships.
It’s the fourth time in school history the Titan men’s basketball program has reached the Sweet 16 round and the second year in a row. The Titan women’s basketball team reached its eighth Sweet 16 and third in the past six seasons by winning the Oshkosh Regional title.
This is the first time in school history that the men’s and women’s basketball teams have reached the Sweet 16 in the same season.
UW Oshkosh is one of only four universities left to have both of their basketball programs still alive in the championship. Along with UWO, Amherst College, Christopher Newport University and the University of St. Thomas have both their men’s and women’s basketball programs playing in the Sweet 16.
