Men’s Basketball Learning to Fly… By: Forrest Teutsch

After a somewhat lackluster season last year the Eagles looked to add many new faces and build a strong core for the team to grow off of. They certainly have accomplished this goal and have excited the fans with an opening day win against Albany Pharmacy. This game produced one of the highest turnouts  of spectators in recent memory. Robert Holloway electrified the team being named NAC Rookie of the Week in the first week of the season. Following up that performance was fellow freshman Carnelius Green whom doned the honor of NAC Rookie of the Week after a hard fought loss to Endicott College. Despite tripping up in the games against Endicott and Westfield State the team has high hopes for this season as conference play begins December 2nd at Thomas College. This group of freshman have really come together and melded as a team eyeing to contend for the North Atlantic Conference title. Ever since wars have been fought, the key to victory has been the element of surprise; this season is bound to be full of it for the opposition as GMC ranked last in the pre-season polls going winless. Last year the team lost twice to Thomas College by the scores of 110-68 and again 96-54. This upcoming match on Friday will by no means be a similar game. The players on this team know they cannot win it by themselves and they have to rely on precision passing and communication. Critics may attack this team because they are nearly entierly freshman and they do not have the composure to win. Critics, get ready to eat those words because this team is the D3 equivolent to the University of Kentuky. Stacked with great freshman talent and an intelligent coaching staff, the team is going places, specifically to the top of the NAC in by their senior year if not much sooner.
