Students, teachers, administrators, and fans gave the Augustana Men's Basketball team a celebratory sendoff this morning on campus in Rock Island. The Vikings and their coaches got on a charter bus headed for Salem, Virginia, and a police escort led the way to the Final Four.

College President, Steve Bahls, was on hand to wish the team good luck. And Coach Grey Giovanine was in good spirits before the 13-hour trip to the east coast.
