Cloverdale’s Craig McMillan, head coach of Santa Rosa Junior College’s Men’s Basketball team for the past 14 years, is a pretty proud guy today.

His team, the SRJC Bear Cubs Men’s Basketball Team, are the new 2014 CCCAA State Champions.  They defeated San Bernadino 73-67 in Sunday afternoon’s final playoff game at Cerritos College in Los Angeles.

Not only is it the first men’s championship in SRJC history, it was the team’s 13th straight win.

McMillian, who was honored earlier this week as Coach of the Year, has now picked up his 300th career win at SRJC.

    I played on the 1964 team that went to State and lost to Fresno. It is exactly 50 years later and SRJC goes all the way to a State Championship. Coach Dr. Glen Albaugh and I are very proud of the team. Congrats to Coach McMillan and the team that beat the odds all the way to State.
