Welcome back, victory Monday.
And with it, comes the return of the CougCenter Monday Morning Trivia Contest.
If you aren’t familiar, every week from now until ... sometime after college basketball season, I’ll pose some relevant trivia questions and award points for correct answers. I’ll tally them up and at the end of it all, someone will join the exclusive club of other CCMMTC winners.
With that said, let’s get right back into it.
