I thought this could have been a dangerous one for Gannon. First, you only have one day to prepare for a quality opponent who has some momentum. Second, the euphoria from the opening round you've anticipated all year is gone, so you really have to grind it out in this game. Remember the men's second round game last year, a 67-65 nailbiter vs. Alderson-Broaddus? Kyle Goldcamp's scrambling layup with 6 seconds left -- and former GU recruit Terrell Eargle's just-missed three pointer at the horn -- were the difference. If you don't recall that game, click here for details.
And before you can say, "California (Pa.), here they come!", #6 seed Millersville stunned the host #2 Vulcans tonight, 74-63. For an early scouting report on the Lady Marauders (is there such a thing as a "female outlaw or mercenary paid or sustained by looting"?), click here. Let's hope this Millersville/Gannon regional final is as exciting as the legendary men's tilt in 1987.
