    I am not into moral victories, but it was promising to see Gannon play well.

    It seemed like close GU losses have been the norm this year … I just looked at the schedule and the Knights are 1-8 in games decided by 5 points or less (or in OT). Not sure if this is good (just unlucky and Gannon is better than their record shows) or bad (struggles in close games will be a staple of the KJ coaching tenure).

    If GU were 5-4 in close contests, their record would be 16-7 and they would be in the periphery for an NCAA bid. But that is all hypothetical and the fact is that they aren't … woulda, coulda, shoulda.


    While I've had a few times that I've wondered if Gannon just out coached in second halves (dominated first half then fell apart, kept close then fell apart, kept close all game and then small things at end lead to loss etc)... close losses have been a staple of GU Basketball for quite some many years now as well as the inability to either a) close out a win or b) do what it takes to get a late win. If you gave Coach Reilly an additional 20-25 points in some of his seasons, GUs record would have been a lot better (and they could even have a few National Championship appearances).

    So, in my opinion, I have to wait until Jefferson gets "his" team to truly wonder about close game falters.
    (also not saying Coach Reilly was ever outcoached per say, but he often didnt have a deep bench and players averaging 35+ mins a game on a team that does nothing but work hard... not a helper)

    They played extremely well. They had some string defensive stances in which they frustrated IUP and it then led to some self-implosive errors by the Hawks.

    They played well. I think they shot like 60% in the second half.

    To their credit every single time it looked like IUP was going to pull away .. GU hit a big shot. Over and over again.

    Was told on Wednesday that Tertsea was sick. Wow ... he must be super sick to miss two games. Could have used him in both.
    If he has flu or anything contagious, I could see Gannon not allowing him to travel.

    Raiders always have trouble with LHU. Probably better for them in terms of how the season sets up than winning another 20-pointer.

    The East got tighter today with wins by Shepherd and Lock Haven on the road. Robbie Heath put on a show at West Chester, scoring 50 of the Rams 100 points. The home stretch is going to be amazing!!

    Refs were out of control in the WCU/Bloom game. 64 fouls called, 1 ejection, and at least 5 technical fouls. Ugly game to watch. No flow.
