David King Is The Best!! We Love You!
|Shea Walker||Wed, 26 Sep 2007 8:51PM|
I'm an old Barton College Basketball player and I was there for the entire week. I remember exactly where and what I ate the entire time in Mass. Sounds Crazy - right ?! I have tons of related stories but one that I must share. I told on of my old teammates (Tim Jones) that if Barton made it to the Championship that he would have to come. He replied sarcastically "sure" ! There is MORE drama to this story; nevertheless, he and Brad walked in the gym at tip-off.

I think everyone in Orlando heard me screaming at the end of the game! What a way to win.
|Bettie Westbrook||Sun, 1 Apr 2007 8:26PM|
I am so happy for this team!! You made me proud to be a graduate and an employee and glad to drive 12 hours to see it in person. What an awesome experience to be in Springfield for the Championship game!! Not only were you the best team there, you also earned the admiration and respect of the people of Springfield. Time and again I heard about the heart you showed and what a well mannered and inspiring group of young men that you were. Ron, you did a fabulous job and showed everyone that David can still beat Goliath. Thank you for letting us be a part of this special time. My girls will never forget this!!

As a previous bulldog basketball player ('95-'99) and now a NCAA D1 soccer coach the WIN has given me and my team at Murray State University great inspiration for next season. I am so proud of the guys - you have definitely put Barton on the map! You produced the most exciting game in a long time at any level! Well done!

|John Munjas||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 5:05PM|
I'm been an avid D1 basketball fan for years & never appreciated D2 hoops until my daughter attended a small school. I heard the story of Barton's championship on National Public Radio & was inspired by the coach mentioning that he read the Biblical story of David & Goliath to the team prior to the game. Congratulations on a great season!
|Marc Oslar||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 4:30PM|
Words cannot express what I saw on Saturday afternoon. This team might have been the greatest team of destiny I have every witnessed. You guys make me proud to be a 2001 graduate of Barton College. I still hear a Barton joke once in a while, but no one can take this from us! Congratulations boys! P.S. Anthony Atkinson the Lord has truly blessed you, and in turn you have truly blessed us. Thank you for being faithful.
|Jerry and Bootsie Harris||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 2:24PM|

Brian Leggett #33 is my little brother and I am so proud of the entire team...THEY DID IT!!! I hope they receive all the recognition they deserves. Anthony is a phenomenon!!!
|Marc and Jessica Walters||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 1:29PM|
What can you say about a coach a bunch of kids who are as humble with others and as faithful to each other as any 'team' ever has been. Way to go Ron--couldn't happen to a better human being. Thanks for everything guys!
|Harold Wade||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 1:23PM|
I was graduated from Atlantic Christian College 1n 1971 back when the school was NAIA and the only thing we did pretty good was play tennis under Coach Tom Parham. This game was really thrilling; I couldn't be happier. I tivoed and was so pleased with the outcome that I edited out the commercials and burned to DVD. It will reside in my archive forever.
|Denise||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 12:27PM|
What a great game! It hade me on the edge of my seat!!!:)
|Robb||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 11:36AM|
Way to go Bulldogs. I am a '01 graduate and there wasn't much to celebrate sports wise when I attended but you all made up for that. Anytime my friends call me and tell me that the Bulldogs are playing means that we have the National Spotlight. And you all won in an unforgettable and classy way.
|Taft Walker||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 10:39AM|
Congratulations, Bulldogs! Job well done!
|Karen Churn||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 8:24AM|
I'm a Central Missouri alum, therefore, when Winona beat Central Missouri on Wednesday night, I was for Barton all the way. Oh, my goodness! You guys rock!!! I wasn't home to watch the game live, but, thankfully, taped it. I've watched the final minute no less that six times! That's what basketball is all about. From now on, you guys will be known as "The Lion Tamers." Way to go!
|Karmesha Peterson||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 7:31AM|
I know that Barton's male basketball team has worked hard to make it where they are. God bless all of you talented players. All of you deserve that trophy. You have put Barton on the map. And to my little cousin Anthony Atkinson; you have no idea how proud we are of you and you and your new fiance be blessed and continue to put God first and you will always prosper. Love you.
|Kelly Lamotta||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 7:34AM|
CONGRATULATIONS BARTON BULLDOGS! I'M VERY PROUD OF ALL OF YOU. YOU ALL WORKED EXTREMELY HARD AND YOU DESERVE TO BE #1. WAY TO REPRESENT!
|Wayne Pitt||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 7:30AM|
Just wanted to say congradulation on a job well done. Number eleven reminded me of myself in my Barton days with the heart and desire of a winner and most important "Never A Quiter and play to win no matter how many seconds remain". This was a great example to to all players in the world today at any level of play that anything is possible if you believe in it hard enough. Once again Job well Done!
|Jennie Schindler Graham||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 6:58AM|
Congratulations guys! Wilson is so proud of you...and I am proud to be able to call myself a BULLDOG!!! (class of '04)
|Carrie Suman Reynell||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 6:42AM|
Congratulations guys! An incredible game to cap off an incredible season. I'm proud to have been a product of the basketball program and of the college! (Class of 03)
|Phyllis L. Youngberg||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 6:14AM|
What a great game and what big hearts the team has. They made us all proud. Thanks for letting the alumni know about the game on TV. Barton basketball has come a long way from the teams in the arly 60's.
|Walter||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 5:36AM|
Being an ACC graduate living in Florida, as is my daughter living in Denver; got to say Barton made us proud to be graduates. Barton doesn't much coverage where we live and this was great.
|Cristy Tu conley||Mon, 26 Mar 2007 4:02AM|
This game kept me on the edge of my seat the entire game. I was talking to everyone from the people sitting next to me, to the commentators on the TV, to you guys on the court, to even the water bottle in my hand! But you guys did us proud, your team work and the angels on the court worked together to get us the D2 Championships. Thanks for all the work that you have done!
|Gray||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 11:49PM|
One more thing. You didn't just tell us to believe. You showed us how to believe!
|Gray||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 11:44PM|
Unbelievable! I have been watching basketball for a long time. I have never seen a game like this. What heart and determination. You were an inspiration to us all. I am an alumnus of ACC/Barton. One of my suite mates in Hackney Hall was the center on the team when I was in college there. We would all go to the games and support him and the team. I don't know where he is now, but he must be ecstatic. Thanks guys for one day in March I will never forget. Congratulations!
|Stevie, Harriet and Larry||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 7:32PM|

|GAIL ANDERSON CYWINSKI||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 3:55PM|
All of the Anderson Kids (Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Oregon)were rooting for Ron and the team. Your dad was their favorite summer camp coach and it was a thrill to see you take the team to victory right down to thee final nano second! Congratulations, Barton Bulldogs!!
|Dawn White||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 3:05PM|

Congrats on a great game and the most exciting finish I've seen in a long time. Now let's hope UNC can bring a 2nd and 3rd national championship in basketball to our great state!

|Mike T.||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 10:24AM|
I am a Springfiled,MA resident and purchased tickets for all games. I quickly became a Barton College supporter due to the great amount of heart and teamwork the entire team displayed. After learning more about your college and basketball team I was even more of a fan!!!!
|Krystal Allen||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 9:52AM|
I love you guys!!! Game well played. That was the best game of basketball I have seen in years. You are going down in the history books. So proud to know you all and to be a BULLDOG!!
|Joe Melcher||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 8:28AM|
That' the most exciting last 35 seconds I have ever seen - and I've been watching basketball a long time. Being an Indiana native I have seen a lot of basketball and I have got to say this was the greatest finish I have ever seen. Congratulations!
|Nick||Sun, 25 Mar 2007 6:30AM|
Just wanted to say congrats on a great win. One of the best endings to a basketball game I've ever seen, and with a national title on the line!
