After getting legendary head coach Tom Klusman the 700th win of his career, Rollins next heads west for the Holiday Hoops Classic in Las Vegas, Dec. 18-19. The Tars will be coming off an 11-day layoff from games due to final exams. Rollins broke out of a two-game skid to start Sunshine State Conference play, having won its last two. Win No. 700 didn’t come easy as the Tars held off Palm Beach Atlantic on the road, 80-79 the last time out. Up first for Rollins in the desert is Angelo State. The Rams are 7-2 on the year and have also won their last two, including a 74-61 win over the Tars following opponent, Tarleton State. The Texans will face LeMoyne on the first day of the event before tangling with the Tars. Tarleton is 7-2 on the season before opening up with the 6-3 Dolphins on Tuesday. All games are played at the Doolittle Community Center in North Las Vegas.
After a strenuous week hitting the books and taking off from competition for final exams, Rollins is set to host Trinity Christian in its final nonconference game of the year. The Tars are winners of three straight and vaulted into a tie for first place in the Sunshine State Conference, joining Florida Southern as the only unbeatens in league play. Monday’s game will be the Tars final tune-up before playing their next 17 games against SSC competition. Trinity Christian is an NAIA school out of Palos Heights, Illinois and will be in Winter Park for the first time. The Trolls play twice before their visit to the Sunshine State, which also includes stops at Southeastern in Lakeland and Florida College in Temple Terrace. TCC will be playing three games in three days on the trip.
