Following a move to the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference (ICCAC), the 2012-13 Hawks finished the season with a 16-15 record after losing in the first round of the ICCAC play-offs. The season was highlighted by a 108-101 overtime victory over 25th ranked Marshalltown Community College on January 12th. The Hawks began the year 13-5 and had a five-game winning streak during the season.
The five- team ICCAC league, comprised of Northeast Community College, Iowa Western Community College, Marshalltown Community College, Indian Hills Community College, and Southeastern Community College, compiled a season record of 119-41. ICCAC Region XI had one of the best overall records in the country.
KJ Bluford led the Hawks in scoring last year, averaging just under 18 points a game. He was named Second Team All-Conference and First Team All-Nebraska by the Omaha World-Herald. Bluford is currently playing for Iowa State University. A fellow starter, Sean McGary, led the region in assists last year. McGary is playing basketball this year for Cameron University in Oklahoma.
“I was proud of the way our sophomores responded when they found out we were moving to a new league,” Head Coach Dan Anderson said.
The Hawks also participated in various elementary school reading programs and helped out with Pack Away Hunger throughout the year.
