OnPoint on WACH Fox: Semi-pro basketball in the Midlands
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) - On this week's edition of OnPoint on WACH Fox, we look at one of the best-kept secrets in Columbia.
Columbia has a semi-pro basketball team called the Carolina Cougars. The team is one of 100 teams across the country in the American Basketball Association.
The Cougars just completed a winning season in its first year in Columbia. Now, they're gearing up for the playoffs, which are slated for Saturday March 11 at Keenan High School in Columbia.
It's about more than just the basketball for the Cougars, as they are also focused on community involvement, youth leadership development, and a focus on homegrown talent for the team's roster to help improve the overall quality of life in the Midlands.
