And aloooooooooha to you and yours,
Basketball is getting to “full-swing” level while others are pushing their way through the playoffs. Let’s see what we have here:
Women’s Basketball: The women’s team improved to an unbeaten 3-0 to start the season by taking down Manhattan College for the eleventh straight time, 63-54 on Saturday. Freshman Da’Shena Stevens took it to Manhattan with 20 points and 13 rebounds against the Jaspers.
Men’s Basketball: Faced with the task of replacing injured standout player Anthony Mason Jr., the sophomores of the men’s basketball team blasted Howard University with a combined 46-point night. The Johnnies walked away with a 79-44 win. Mason Jr. won’t be walking away, though. The senior will undergo season-ending foot surgery after tearing the peroneal tendon in his right foot. The Flashlight sends our best to a speedy recovery.
Women’s Volleyball: Notre Dame’s Fightin’ Irish proved to be just a bit too much for women’s volleyball, deceptively downing the Red Storm 3-1 this past Saturday in the semifinals of the Big East Tourney. The sets were closer than the match shows, with the scores settling in as follows: 25-23, 20-25, 21-25, 25-27. On a lighter note, senior Wioleta Leszczynska racked up another honor, getting named to the 2008 Big East Volleyball All-Tournament team. Congrats out to her.
Men’s Soccer: The Red Storm will host Boston University on Tuesday night to kick off (no pun intended) the 2008 NCAA Tourney. FREE tickets will be available at the UC starting at 4 pm. So get out there and support the No. 3 ranked team.
And that’s the end of that chapter.
