It’s back on a playoff road that Shepherd has become pleasingly familiar with in recent years. After taking down another WVIAC championship, the Rams completed the sometimes bumpy season with an 8-2 overall record that was strong enough to earn a sixth-place ranking in the final NCAA Division II Super Region One standings.

SHEPHERDSTOWN — Finding useful depth can give a college basketball team a winning season. Balance. Production coming from every corner.
