The Franklin & Marshall men’s basketball team came home with the fourth-place trophy from the NCAA Division III Championships after falling (79-67) to Guilford College in the consolation game on Saturday, March 21, at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Va.

“It was so difficult to have all of the emotion involved, coming here to play in a national championship,” said head coach Glenn Robinson, who has been named D3Hoops.com Coach of the Year.

The Diplomats lost a tense heartbreaker (62-58) to Richard Stockton College on Friday, March 20, in Salem. The contest was tight throughout and featured 11 ties.

“I think everybody would understand how proud I am of these guys,” Robinson said after the game. “We have been rated below in terms of where we were in our league, what we could do in the playoffs, what we could do in the NCAAs and even then, what we were to do with tonight’s game. Each and every time they beat the prognosticators and played well.”
