Champions was Sit & Spin's Spring Mainstage production for the 2004-05 season. The play, an original work by NU student John Dixon, was a "basketball farce" that depicted the dysfunction of a fictional professional basketball team, and was presented on an actual basketball court in Patten Gymnasium. The play became the first of two Sit & Spin productions in a row that caused an actor to break a bone, when actor Molly Beucher broke her finger. She continued to perform despite her injury.

Champions was the biggest financial success of Sit & Spin's 2004-2005 season.
