So I know everyone’s excited to get to March. Spring break…St. Patrick’s Day…March Madness…
Hold the phone. We’ve still got one more game in Gooding Arena, so break out those Squirrel Squad t-shirts, and make your way down to the GIAC for the 7pm tip-off between the Fords and the Ursinus Bears for the opportunity to play in the semifinals of the Centennial Conference Tournament.
The Fords have quietly, yet confidently made their way through conference play, finishing with a 12-8 conference record, and a 17-8 overall record. While standout 2nd team all-Centennial performer Dominique Meeks has consistently paced the team, 6 players have averaged over 6 points per game, contributing to their selfless, team ball. With a balanced offensive attack, and a staunch defensive front, this team has the appearance of one that could do some damage in the playoffs.
Haverford fan support during crucial, must-win games has been fantastic this year. The crowds at the men’s and women’s soccer games, as well as the women’s field hockey playoff were incredible, and certainly helped contribute to the team’s success. Let’s bring that same fire to this matchup, as the women’s basketball team continues their march towards a Centennial Conference title.
