CORSICANA – With the game tied and possession of the ball, Lamar State College – Port Arthur men's basketball team held its fate in its own hands … then it disappeared just as quickly. A turnover by the Seahawks with 2.1 seconds left and a buzzer-beating basket by Navarro handed the Bulldogs an 81-79 win in overtime Saturday, Jan. 5.

At the onset of the 2012-13 season, no one knew anything about the Lamar State College – Port Arthur Seahawks.

Oh, what a season it was.

The Lamar State Seahawks completed one of the most magical and improbable runs in JUCO history this season after a 1-2 finish in the JUCO National Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas last week. The Seahawks lost their first game to Monroe College out of the Bronx, 70-52, wound up beating then-#1 ranked Missouri State 69-62 in the next game before narrow 66-63 loss to Cape Fear Community College out of North Carolina.
