Gannon has added a 10th recruit to its 2009 recruiting class in Danard Crouch, a 6-foot, 2-inch junior college transfer out of Victor Valley (Calif.) College.

Coach John Reilly said he needed another guard and is looking for Crouch to providing him defense and a shot-maker.

Here’s some footage of Crouch. He’s No. 21.

When asked about his nine-player 2009 recruiting class,  Gannon coach John Reilly named five players he felt as if could contribute right away. The first person he named was Division I transfer Isaac Reid.

Junior F Isaac Reid (Transfer Loyola (Md.) College): “Isaac Reid is probably the most talented newcomer that we signed … Here’s he’s going to have a lot more freedom than when he had probably at his last place. He’s a guy that can play multiple positions. He’s definitely one guy that we’re really looking to.”

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.
