RC has been ranked as high as # 9 in the NAIA D2 coaches poll while spending several weeks over the past 3 seasons in the top 25 or receiving votes. The Warriors became an eligible NAIA member for the first time in 12-13. RC is dual affiliated with the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), which also hosts several NAIA and NCAA institutions as dual affiliated members. In the past four seasons Klint Pleasant has led RC to 3 national championship game appearances while capturing the 12-13 USCAA Division 1 National Championship. The Warriors were most recently the USCAA D1 National Runners Up, losing to NCAA Division 2 member, Daemen College.
Coach Pleasant says this about the offense:
We look to implement a little more tempo into our offense as compared to previous seasons based on some new personnel mixing in with our returners and the change in shot clock. We will have the ability to play multiple line ups with a lot of different looks. The constant carry over from year to year will emphasize screening and cutting along with shot selection.
Coach Pleasant says this about the defense:
Defensive intensity and discipline has always been a non-negotiable within the program. We will continue to strive to be one of the best defenses in the country based upon defensive field goal percentage and points allowed per game. We try to deliver multiple looks based on our upcoming match up and opposing teams strengths and weaknesses.
