2008 Spring Men Portal


We could put up points but our defense usually let us down. St Mary's had a very good scrum which helped them out a lot in the second half. In our consolation game we beat Bowling Green in another high scoring affair but I don't remember the score. St. Mary's wound up in the final four after beating Kutztown the next day and had Cal Berkely in the round of four who they lost a close match to. Apparently they were staging a comeback but ran out of time. Overall I think we finished 8th in the nation overall. The highest we were ever ranked that year was second which we didn't consider all that accurate.
