Championships Men’s Final 8

The last time the Acadia Axemen hosted a U SPORTS Men’s Basketball Final was 1971 when they became one of six schools in the country to win a national championship on their home court.

Tales like this display Acadia’s rich and long-standing history, something that helped secure a nod to host this year’s 2018 U SPORTS National Championship. Acadia is looking to once again, establish themselves as a top program in the country.  In their most recent appearance on the national stage, the Axemen finished in fourth place.

After a few years on and off, Halifax’s Scotiabank Center is set to host its 22nd Men’s Basketball Championship since 1988. Since 2003, the Carleton Ravens have won 13 national titles, with last year’s gold medal being the team’s seventh straight.

Why do people tune in to watch the best amateur basketball in the country? The ‘un-known’ has been proven to come out time and time again, along with the chance to knock off the champs.
