Southwest Tennessee Community College is preparing for the Junior College National Championships.

The Saluqis won the Tennessee Region 7 Tournament, are 25-and-1 on the year, have a 24-game winning streak, and are Ranked 4th in the Nation.

Longtime Southwest Tennessee Head Coach Verties Sails today named the Tennessee Community College Coach of the Year.

He says the team he has this year makes his job easy.

Sails says the players love each other, and they don't like to lose...so they fit in with him just fine.

The Saluqis Myron Strong, a former Hamilton High Star, is the TN Community College Player of the Year.

Southwest TN will face Top Ranked Chipola CC on Tuesday NOON in the National Juco Quarterfinals at Hutchison Kansas.
