SoBA Basketball Players Shine on the Court and in the Classroom

Coach Travis Decuire and men's basketball team

Coach Travis DeCuire (Marketing ’94) demands the best from his players—on and off the court. Their 21-12 record last season attests to the time and hard work these athletes devote to the game. Equally impressive is the academic commitment these students make. SoBA has nine business majors who are also men’s basketball student-athletes with an average GPA of 3.26.

According to DeCuire, the secret to a student-athlete’s success in both areas is “expectations and commitment.”  

“Leadership, loyalty, pride, respect and accountability are the staples to our brand as a program.  As long as we continue to live by them, we will continue to be successful in life,” said DeCuire.

Congratulations to the players and Coach DeCuire!  Business majors on the basketball team are Riley Bradshaw, Zach Camel, Gavin DeJong, Brandon Gfeller, Fabijan Krslovic, Jack Lopez, Bobby Moorehead, Michael Oguine and Trever Spoja.
