    I’m planning on being there RichH. How would I be able to isolate who the recruits are?

    HS jackets are usual. Will be with some of our players and perhaps a coach. Size is also a clue. Far from an exact science. Also s/n/b too far from our bench. I’ll be watching on tv . Hope for a good game and turnout of students and recruits.

    Not making trek down for the game, but am going to Lafayette game in two weeks!!!

     

    Huge game for LU, want to get off the PL play with a win. HC will be a good test minus CJ, as they figure to be top half PL so a win would be huge.

    What a joke of a crowd on national TV. With or without McCollum, two good teams playing but that crowd is pathetic.

    What the heck did I just see, Goldy was shot out of cannon, 6 boards went up strong..hustled fought and battled.

    Loved it…6 boards in a half.

    Really balanced half, everyone contributed and that is the answer to winning minus-CJ…broad contribuitons.

    My only reaction  to today’s game… GOLDSBOROUGH! Nice to see a little something out of him and hope to see some more constructive criticism from you guys.

    A Q , was HC playing a 2-3 zone? Why, against us, we are best 3pt team in USA. Brown bad game coach. Burrell good. Cross bigs not so much.

    Crowd was actually impressive by my standards.  More than 2000 people.

    Full blue and yellow seats on the bench side.  Seemed to be some new offensive schemes as well.  All in all a great effort.

    By the way, I believe I heard Reed say he had the flu — thus the elbow bumps replacing the fist bumps.

    I’m not sure how many here were at the game so let me give a quick synopsis.
    1.)Sorry Rich, I saw no football coaches nor anybody that even resembled a possible recruit at the game and I sat right behind the bench.
    2.)The last 25 minutes or so was the best team basketball I saw Lehigh play in years.
    3.)IMHO, in the absence of CJ, Holden Greiner is the best all around basketball player on the team. He can score inside and outside, rebounds and hustles his butt off. The 3 blocks tonight was a bonus.
    4.)Mackey, who is just a tad below Greiner in my opinion, completely avoided a funky spell tonight. When he is consistent, he can be as good as it gets.
    5.)I hope I just witnessed the renaissance of Justin Goldborough. The stat sheet has him at 10 rebounds in 21 minutes along with 4 or 5 points. I tried to focus on him when he was in. None of that is a fluke. He was extremely active under the boards. He played good defense. He went up strong with the ball, although he needs to not go up so straight IMO but that will come. His rebounds were all deserved.
    6.)Gabe needs to round out his game. He is a tremendous post player but when the ball comes inside, it wouldn’t hurt to kick it back out. He will never be a rebounder.
    7.) We still play mostly man but I hadn’t noticed until today how much we tend to double up on the ball especially we our big men. It resulted in a lot of steals and TOs but it tends to leave the perimeter wide open. Tonight, unlike Bryant, they failed to convert.
    8.)All in all, superb effort. Lehigh will still be a force in the PL.

    Very impressive performance by Lehigh. Holy Cross was coming off a 78-point effort in a win over
    Columbia and Lehigh held them to 47. Lehigh had balanced scoring, three players (HG, MM
    and GK) in double figures and two more at 9 points (AD, BJB) plus 7 for SC.

    Goldsborough had 10 rebounds and 6 points in 21 minutes.

    They played the way they must without CJ.

    American on the road will be a big test
