I think it was Bill Parcells who said, "You are what your record says you are." Well Gannon is now a stellar 14-3 after pummeling California (Pa.) this afternoon, 82-59, so that must mean our Knights are pretty darn good. What enhances that record is how GU is winning games as of late. These aren't squeakers:
* vs. Cal, 82-59
* at Edinboro, 86-63
* at Cheyney, 85-70
* vs. Mansfield, 88-64
* vs. Bloomsburg, 81-55
you didn't know anything about a team, saw on the stat sheet they've
won 14 of 17 games with the last several in convincing fashion, you'd
think they were a juggernaut. That seems to be what John Reilly has
constructed this year. Still not convinced? Here are some more stats
Gannon SID Dan Teliski dug up on the Knights:
* Gannon has shot 50% or better during the second half in six consecutive
games, including a second-half chart over 60% during four of those six
contests. Gannon shot 64.7% during the second half vs. Cal, hitting 11-of-17 shots.
* Overall, the PSAC's top shooting
team has shot over 50% for the entire game during 5 of its last 6
contests. The Knights entered the week as the 13th-best shooting team in NCAA
* The Golden Knights have out-rebounded 10 consecutive
opponents, including seven of those by double digits. Gannon crushed Cal on the glass, 43-25.
said last post don't get too high because the PSAC can bring you back
down to earth next game. But marvel for a minute (or two) this stretch
which we haven't seen in a few years. And then say a prayer that it
continues Wednesday vs. Mercyhurst.
