Amazing how fast time flies during the season. It's crazy that March is around the corner already, and most leagues are wrapping up their regular seasons this week. For us we just won a big road game last night vs Navy 64-55 that secures minimum the #2 seed in the Patriot League Tournament, and still gives us a chance at the #1 seed and the Regular Season Championship that goes with it.
We are now 13-4 in the league which started with a 10-0 record in the league. If we win our game on Saturday vs Bucknell and BU loses vs Holy Cross, we would be Conference Champions. Definitely a hugely important game to give us the best chance at winning the conference tourney. Another important part of Saturday's game is Senior Day where we'll celebrate the career of Tony Wroblicky who is our only graduating senior. Tony has been huge for us this year and is arguably the best center in our league. He has worked hard this season to develop his overall skill level and has been one of the focal points of our offense and the anchor of our defense.
The Patriot League Tournament starts next week, and we are gearing up for the challenge and are hoping to continue our special season. Also coming up soon will be major news for my family that we have been keeping low key, but stay tuned.
This is definitely the most exciting time of the year for everyone associated with college basketball, and for us the next step in accomplishing our goals is Saturday at 2pm vs Bucknell! Come out to Bender Arena and check us out if you're in the area or you can watch us on CBS Sports...GO EAGLES!!
