    This is a major disappointment. I wonder if the decline in the program during the second half of the season and versus expectations for the year is related to her deciding to leave?

    This ranks up there as important a discussion item as PSU football of a few years back.

    Unlikely cause for slump. No doubt Sue and team knew all year. Does explain emphasis in the recruits for next year. For me it adds to the frustration of this past seadon. This was the year. Next year is rebuilding. Zero frontcourt experience returning from this year. We get McCloskey Eripret and Menendez back off knee injuries. A very young team up front.

    “as she will begin her master’s program in health administration in the Milken Institute School of Public Health.”
    Lehigh doesn’t offer that degree!

    Thanks AB. That explains her move. Still sucks for us.

    I don’t buy it.

    Health Administration!?

    A Lehigh MBA – that she could have received in one year based on the new graduate program would provide better credentials than a GW degree in Health Administration!?

    Sorry but this was a decision, in my view, based on wanting to join a first rate BB program which, in truth, LU is not.
    We have great people and players but results do not match up with talent that has been recruited and this year showed this in spades.
    Now let’s get back to the really relevant issues for the Lehigh sports enthusiasts: Sandusky, Paterno, and PSU football.

    While I dont disagree that team underperformed last year, your academic analysis is asinine. Yes, ww have a very good MBA program. It has almost nw relevance to Hospital admin. My sistew in law is a Regional Hospital Administrator for Humana. It is a very lucrative profession. Lexi gets to play ball in a good program and get a Masters in her chosen field. Good forher.Not great for us but it is her life.

    Asinine ??

    Really ? How would you know?

    I appreciate your patriotism but, in the real world, few people’s careers end up in areas where they studied in college. Lehigh’s best player opting out of the program in 3 years is more of a basketball decision than anything else.

    Go back to fantasy land:

    Sandusky is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and the county seat of Erie County.[7] Situated in northern Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie, Sandusky is midway between Toledo to the west and Cleveland to the east.

    Now you can predict the future. Fits right in with asinine.
    She graduated. Not quite the same as opting outto play Basketball elsewhere.. She wants to go into Hospital Administration. Her choice not yours to make for her.

    Items of Interest:

    The parties that received settlements from Penn State will be asked to cooperate in another lawsuit.

    In an order Monday, Potter County Senior Judge John Leete, specially presiding in Centre County, directed the university to make the request.

    “Counsel for Penn State University will, as appropriate, approach victims in the Sandusky matter to ascertain their willingness to take part in voluntary discovery in the above-captioned matter,” Leete wrote.

    Oh, at the same time, LU’s best player abandons ship leaves after 3 years. Anyone wondering as to the decision to go to a step down academic school but with a much better bb program is deemed “asinine”.

    Perhaps more likely that she wanted to get that Masters and now her parents dont have to pay for it.
    We have had our share of transfers for Bball on the men’s side.
    Not all decisions are motivated by sports. Really dont believe hers was.

    Well, I didn’t see that coming. Personally it’s disappointing only because I was looking forward to watching her play here for another year.
    It must have been a very difficult decision. From an athletic side, she gives up the high probability of breaking the Lehigh and the Patriot League career rebounding records. The Lehigh Hall of Fame was a very real probability and even a jersey retirement was possible. IMO, she may have been that good.
    Conversely from an academic side,her achievements may have been equally as impressive. From personal experience, it is hard to get through Lehigh. Doing it with high grades while excelling athletically and graduating in 3 years is rarified air. This young lady is obviously driven and her career path is well thought out. I wish her all the success in the world at GW, who I believe just lost the best rebounder in the nation while acquiring the best returning one) and in all her future endeavors.

    Perhaps to explain Lexi’s decision, Martins was given given a two year scholarship to GW even though she only has one year of eligibility left.

    In other words, she leveraged her significant basketball abilities to get a great education through grad school at no cost. That sure beats the philosophy of giving up a great education in order to get more playing time IMHO.
