Title: York College of Pa.
Post by: yepper on February 09, 2018, 10:42:34 AM
moved last night to 20 - 2 with a tough conference win over Penn State Harrisburg.

Started the season 18-0 with wins over multiple ranked opponents. moved up to #3 in the D-3 hoops pool.

took back to back losses to conference foes Mary Washington & Frostburg State knocked them out of the top 10.

back on track with 2 conference wins. Three more conference games left, Salisbury, St. Mary's and Christopher Newport. Currently back up to #7.

They have a 2 game lead in the conference even with those 2 losses. Six teams make the postseason. Top 2 get a first round bye and play the winners of the 3-6 & 4-5 game. Winning the conference gets an automatic invite to the NCAA's. Their resume is strong enough to get an at large bid but a championship would maybe allow them to host a first round NCAA pod of games.

We sat through some lean years here so I'm rootin' for them!

finished the year losing 2 of 3.  second seed in conference tournament

second round tournament game vs. Salisbury, York wins 75 to 59

advance to championship game vs. Christopher Newport @ Newport.

win championship game @ Newport, a place they have never, as in never, won before 82 - 73.

there will be NCAA basketball in York next Friday.   given that off day at the Giant Center, it works out perfectly.
