2007-08 BLUE MOUNTAIN COLLEGE TOPPERS MEN'S BASKETBALL
(0-32 final record, 0-20 conference)
Blue Mountain College is a Baptist college located in northern Mississippi.
In 2007, the school decided to add men's basketball to their list of activities.
Despite only having 106 men at the entire school, BMC was able to cobble
together ten players. Unfortunately, their inaugural season in the NAIA's TranSouth
Conference has been a spectacular disaster.
If nothing else, we can commend Blue Mountain for their unique nickname of the Toppers. In fact, maybe Cary Grant's ghost is possessing the team. It would certainly explain the team's vanishing act on defense.
