Here's wishing the Royals all the best this afternoon as they play for yet another championship.
Once again...nothing flashy, nobody truly dominant, just a bunch of inter-changeable kids that can score & who are now playing some pretty decent defense.
They can still get a little lazy on the perimeter but overall, they have really improved defensively since the last Moravian game at the Long Center.
Big question...does the loser of this game get overlooked by the NCAA in favor of Susquehanna?
That would be a hard pill for the Royals to swallow since they've already beat the ex Crusaders twice.
Could the Landmark actually get 3 teams in if Moravian were to win (Scranton & Susquehanna)?
Should be a good game if the Royals slow the game down & limit Moravian from crashing the boards for second chance shots.
Royals will also need to shoot around 70 plus % from the line...& Danzig needs to hit a few early shots from deep to open things up for the big guys underneath.
All in all, pretty remarkable job the new coach at Moravian has done in just a few short years.
His kids are not playing like they are just happy to finally win a few...they are playing like there is no doubt in their minds that they belong in this game.
Only complaint...whatever happened to evening games on the weekend?
The Royals have always drawn far better at 7 or 8 o'clock than these mid afternoon affairs.
Hopefully the students show up today, the kids deserve that support.
Not sure if you were in DC and thus unable to watch the Men's game. Good student turnout, a little thin with the "regular" fans. Rain, thunder and lightening outside and Dean was commenting about how hot the gym was. Happy for John Vitkus, career high in points, and a couple rim rockers. Only negative, no storming of the court I wonder if that is a new policy.
Congrats to the Royals let's see how the NCAA screws us on Monday!
