There was a time in Gannon basketball history when a road contest vs. a 5-10 club and a home game against a 6-9 team meant a perfect 2-0 week was all but assured. That time was last year. And the year before. Heck, pretty much every season in program history the Knights would mop the floor with those opponents. But this year has been unlike any other as Gannon lost Wednesday at Cal, 56-54, on a three at the buzzer and then fell Saturday vs. Seton Hill, 69-62.
honest to goodness don't even know what to say at the point when the highly respected program I've worshiped for 30+ years is one loss away from matching the Cleveland Browns
mark of a 3-13 season. And Gannon's next game is at 12-4 Mercyhurst who
last time out won at Seton Hill by 19. And the game before that at
Pitt-Johnstown (who beat Gannon by 4 on Dec. 19)
the Lakers blitzed the Mountain Cats by more than 50 points, 89-37. In
less than one year, we've gone from expecting to win every game against
our local rivals to hoping we keep the game within 40.
to work and coaching commitments, I was able to only watch the second
half of the game at Cal this week, so I can't offer any more analysis
beyond that. Let's hope the players' energy level is higher than mine is right now.
