FORT WAYNE (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The NAIA Division II men's basketball national champion St. Francis Cougars returned home Wednesday night to a police and fire escort and a rally at Hutzell Center.

The team bus was escorted from I-69 to the USF campus, where hundreds of fans were on hand to welcome the Cougars home.

Coach Jeff Rekeweg says the title win is just now sinking in, and DeJovaun Sawyer-Davis, the NAIA Tournament MVP, says the Cougars can make another run at the title only if they match the effort and focus of this year's team.
