For the second straight contest, Gannon raced out to an early lead, sunk into an offensive funk and nearly blew the game, and then rallied late to post a double-digit win. Do you realize if they do that 3 more times in a row, they'll win the PSAC and make the NCAA tournament? If they do it 6 more times after that, they'll win the national championship! OK, maybe I should just be happy with two in a row.
I'm a little bummed that Gannon is playing at #8 IUP instead of reeling Clarion (losers of 4 of their last 6), but I'm very thankful the Knights are in much better place than they were at the outset of the season. Cal was 12-3 entering PSAC play, but they didn't make the postseason. Ditto for Slippery Rock who was 11-2. While they were watching for their names to appear in the national rankings, Gannon was retooling its roster for the 20th time.
"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough." Thankfully, that should be the only time I ever quote Oprah on this website.
