This has been a very long season, not because of our up and down play, but with the emotional peaks and valleys. We knew coming in that we would be without a true home court, but the extraordinary efforts of the Penn athletic administration and basketball staff made us feel like Dorothy in the “Wizard of Oz” – that there is no place like home. The true spirit of the Big 5 prevailed.
On the floor it is now time to put up or collect the uniforms. Our struggles continue to be at the offensive end. Nothing comes easy for us. I feel that I must accept responsibility for our weaknesses.
To all of the teams in Philadelphia may your March bring much madness. To the fans, hopefully your brackets (for amusement only) will be full of winners.
To the Philly basketball community, think about joining the coaches in our fight versus cancer – next Monday (March 16) at The Palestra for the March Madness Tipoff Breakfast and April 18 for our annual black-tie gala.
