United Access of Champaign, Illinois, has today announced that the company sponsored the National Intercollegiate Wheelchair Basketball Tournament. The company has a long history of community involvement and support, and sponsoring this event is certainly in keeping with the company’s mission.
The National Intercollegiate Wheelchair Basketball Tournament is a historic event with a long, rich history. It actually began in 1949, and was created by Tim Nugent at the University of Illinois. 2012 marked the 35th anniversary of that first competition, and the tournament was held at the University of Illinois’ Huff Hall Gym this year. Attendees enjoyed some of the most talented men’s and women’s teams in the nation, including:
- The University of Illinois
- The University of Missouri
- The University of Alabama
- The University of Texas – Arlington
- The University of Wisconsin – Whitewater
- Southwest Minnesota State University
- Edinboro University
The tournament ran from March 8th through March 10th, and was a rousing success, with intense competition from some of today’s most talented athletes. Once the dust settled, the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater took first place in both men’s and women’s, while the University of Illinois claimed second in men’s and third in women’s. The University of Alabama took second place in women’s, while the University of Texas – Arlington claimed the third ranked spot in the men’s competition.
The 35th annual National Intercollegiate Wheelchair Basketball Tournament brought athletes together from around the nation, allowing them to compete, enjoy fellowship and providing friends, family and fans with an incredible experience, and United Access was proud to play a part in making that possible.
