Feels Like the First Time

Hitting the road for the mountains of North Carolina for the holiday weekend, and I needed to take a moment from packing to weigh in on tonight’s action. Don’t worry…I won’t leave you hanging. Saturday action will be followed closely, with Stella always at the ready.

Hooray Monte…Delaware 71, Niagara 53. Herb Courtney is doing his best Harding Nana impression, and I Am Sam McMahon chipped in a career high 20. Good for Monte Ross. Calvin Murphy, where are you?

Hooray Gadlay (okay, Gadley, and this was a pathetic attempt)…Hofstra 65, St. Joseph’s 63. Yes, it was Loren Stokes’ 18-footer with 2.2 seconds to play that won it, but Chris Gadley gets special mention for earning his uniform tonight. Gadley added season highs of eight points and nine rebounds before fouling out with 1:17 to play. More importantly, he played hard and effective minutes.

Hooray me…Drexel 61, George Mason 49. Okay so Drexel earned the victory, but I tried to tell you Domonick Mejia would be the difference. Psst–he scored 20 points and carried the Dragons early and then hit the dagger trey late. One day you will listen to me. The victory was sealed by a stifling defensive performance through the middle part of the second half. I don’t know the exact stat, but Mason managed about 12 points in the last 14 minutes of the game.(Side note: man, that Will Thomas is freaking good.)

Hooray Sha……….ver…The Tribe 72, Hampton 67. Odd stat of the night: W&M is now 13-0 under Tony Shaver when they shoot 50% or better. Really. Keep in mind W&M doesn’t win a lot of games.
