NEPA:
Right you are.
Unfortunately, I think we've all seen this version of Royal men's basketball year after year after year.
Talented teams on paper that never quite put it all together for an extended period of time.
Hope they get up for the big Sarah Lawrence rivalry game!

Agreed.  York got 14 offensive rebounds and seemed to get to every loose ball.  Scranton actually shot better than York, but when you give up 11 more shots (64 for York vs. Scranton's 53) a few more are bound to go in.

Can I also vent. Maybe Iím living in the past but the place was empty tonight. Dave Martin is doing a great job but can he working on getting some butts in seats? They are averaging 250 a game and zero students unless you count the cheerleaders.

Drew smacked down Kings tonight in other action ..

 I used to attribute the dropoff in student support to the academic calendar - finals in Dec and no students on campus from then to Feb - but now I'm thinking that they're more concerned with academics and social media than to support their fellow students at the games. Last nite would have been an attractive opponent for an entertaining Royals' team, yet no students.

It is a different student these days..................but don't get me started. Social media and vaping take precedence. It's not just Scranton........but it is sad to see the place so empty. Was never the case in the Bessoir days!

 Royals knock off DeSales tonite after semester finals break. Jack Brockett still missing from lineup after injury in Goucher game 9 days ago. Ben Bosland replaced him as the starter, coming up with 7 assists. Love to watch Ben pass.
  Still time to jump on the Royals' bandwagon. Entertaining team to watch. Bandwagon leaves the Long Center shortly; next stop, Miami, to play a NESCAC team, Bates, on Wednesday.

"Still time to jump on the Royals bandwagon"?

Here is the page for the Shootout that the Royals are going to be a part of. Enjoy while you wrap some presents; sip your egg nogg and try to stay warm.
