1959-60 Basketball Team
The 1959-60 Westminster College men’s basketball squad holds a unique place in the history of Blue Jay basketball. The 1959-60 squad captured the Missouri College Athletic Union title, becoming the first basketball squad to win the MCAU crown since the 1938-39 team brought home the crown. Ironically, the 1959-60 title would be the final MCAU title Westminster would win in basketball and it would not be
until 1985-86 that Blue Jay basketball fans would celebrate another conference championship, when Westminster captured the Ozark Collegiate Conference trophy. The 1959-60 Blue Jays were led by All-MCAU selection Dave Wright and
All-MCAU selection Dale Ocheskey.
