No. 5-ranked Gannon will continue its historic season in the Elite Eight of the NCAA Division II Men's Basketball Tournament against Central Missouri next week in Springfield, Mass.
The Gannon Golden Knights are once again a national power in NCAA Division II men’s basketball.
I personally watched them go through two tough seasons in which they won only 21 games in John Reilly’s first two seasons as head coach.
In their last two seasons under Reilly, Gannon has won 56 games.
No wonder the Erie BayHawks put a spotlight on him during Wednesday night’s game against the Austin Toros at Tullio Arena to acknowledge him and his team’s achievements this season.
Gannon established a school record for most wins in a season with 30 this season and won the Atlantic Regional to earn a spot in the Elite Eight in Springfield, Mass., where it will take on Central Missouri (25-4) next week.
Good luck Knights.
Much respect due.
