I'm not shocked that Gannon lost at 9-2 Cheyney this afternoon, but I'm blown away that the Knights got blown away for the third time in three road games this season. I know the final margin of GU's first two losses were by 9 points and 4 points, but they had to rally from near 20-point margins to make those close. At Cheyney, the Knights trailed by as many as 34 points in the second half. I can't comprehend that a team this talented and on a five-game win streak fell behind 28-7 just 12 minutes into the game. I also can't fathom that Gannon attempted only four three-pointers vs. the Wolves after averaging nearly 20 three-point attempts per game coming in. I'm not angry at anyone; I'm just completely perplexed.
Hopefully Coach Reilly and crew can right the ship before they face the Ship (Shippensburg) Sunday. The stats aren't in their favor:
* GU is 0-3 on the road this season
* Shippensburg is 4-1 at home
* Earlier today, Ship beat previously undefeated Clarion, 69-63
UPDATE: Now I'm even more confused. Wayne State, who Gannon handled a little over a week ago, trounced #1 Findlay today, 91-68.
