Very exciting game with GFU beating St. Bens, 74-69.  St. Ben's held a 30-24 halftime edge with their 6'4" center hitting 4/5 3's.  Liz Clark kept the Bruins in the game in the first half with Kim Leith taking over in the 2nd frame and finishing with 25 points.  Liz finished with 23 and iced the game with 2 freebies with 11 seconds left.  St. Bens outrebounded the Bruins 43-32 and TO's were about even.  GFU was awesome in the last 10 minutes, with Leith hitting 3 straight 3's and a couple of "left em in the dust" drives to take over the game.  Congrats Bruins.  Keep winning, Baby.

That's right, I was practically dieng from anticapation over here listening to it.  Now we just need to beat Randolph-Macon or Trinity and we're off to the Final Four.

Take it easy Andrew.  It's hard to do CPR from 800 miles away over a DSL.  I'm just not that good.  Enjoy the campus wide celebration.   I will look forward to giving you the same advice tomorrow.

Anyone who will listen.
3 straight years NWC makes it to the Elite 8.
3 straight years the NWC gets one team in to the national tournament.

Bah Humbug.  The ladies made a great run and represented the NWC and GFU well.  It always feels a little empty when our NWC representative looses, especially when it is my Bruins, but we have had elite 8 trips 3 years in a row so we have been well represented.  I will just have to pack up the gear and wait till next fall to start this all again.  At least we got past a MIAC representative this time around.  I am sure Whitworth could also have gone deep into the tourney.  See you all next year.  Be forewarned, the Bruins will miss Liz but have a lot of depth and young talent coming back.
Andrew, sorry I didn't get to give you another round of ventricular arythmia calming advice.

The Bruins had one of those "hard but good" experiences that make sport the great drama that it is.  Right now it is just "hard."  The good will come when this team regroups for another run at it next year.  While there will be important pieces missing (LC and KT), there will also be a new hunger and a new depth to this team that could take them all the way.  They won’t soon forget what it’s like to play in front of such a large and partisan crowd, against a team that looked so imposing.  They will have fresh memories of why it is called “home court advantage” and what the western D III teams are up against when they play back east.  The Bruins will start the year knowing they “are supposed to win” while other teams will be measured against them.  By the end of next year they will have learned that staying on top is harder work than getting to the top, and that the grip on that top rung can be pretty slippery.

Nevertheless, the Bruins can be very proud of what they accomplished this year, and they have much to build on.  Right now the bitterness of losing is still in your mouth, but if losing wasn’t so hard, winning wouldn’t be so sweet.  

Great job Bruins, you deserve all the success you’ve had.

She does have one more year of eligibility but she requested she be included in senior night and is not planning on coming back.  I doubt anyone could convince her to come back for another year.

She's getting married to Eric Feigi this summer.  Her body hurts too much to continue and she says she is ready to move on.

Randolph-Macon beats Scranton, 70-65.  That score leaves lots of "if only's" for the Bruins.  Having seen last week's game, it's not hard to imagine GFU playing Milikan for the Div III Title.  That makes the "agony of defeat" a little more "agonizing"!

swiss-

every team could use a what if or 'if only,'  don't punish yourself....really it won't turn back time and it won't make GFU come out on top of the scoreboard....last year UPS lost by 2 or whatever with 3 seconds and the year before PLU by 1 maybe with 2-3 seconds left----seriously that is a bit closer and cause for 'agnoy of defeat.'

wildcat---you make me proud.
