John Wood entered the tournament having won 19 of its last 21 games, but will now settle for, at best, a seventh place finish as it will end its season in the consolation bracket.
Central Community College advances to take on Cincinnati State on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. while John Wood will play in Thursday’s 11 a.m. consolation bracket game against Garrett College.
“It’s a W so I’m happy, but I’m not satisfied yet,” Criswell said. “We still have games to play. We didn’t come here just to win one game.”
