I won't say much because I've been tied up due to a work commitment, but it was satisfying to see the Knights get well against PSAC dregs Cheyney and Clarion (60-45) during the week. You can't really celebrate wins over teams that are now a combined 4-23; you just nod your head in affirmation, kind of like making a two-foot putt. You expect to get the job done and only react (i.e. go berserk) if you fail.
But this week is cupcake-free. Undefeated and nationally ranked IUP invades the Hammermill Wednesday night, then the Knights trek to Edinboro
to renew that rivalry. I know the Fighting Scots are reeling, losing 4
of 6, but when was Gannon's last comfortable game at McComb? When GU
wins, it's a nailbiter, ragged slugfest, or a combination of the two.
Plus, I'm not sure if this lineup can handle big man Bryan Theriot.
Gannon earns a second consecutive 2-0 week, we'll have real reason to
celebrate and even the skeptics would have to increase their confidence
in this club. The Knights will be a significant underdog vs. the Crimson
Hawks, but they way they're rebounding and defending, the game could be
