It’s been a fun two weeks here in Collegeville. On February 13th, we took down UST in front of an electric and packed Sexton Arena. That Saturday, we welcomed back a number of our alumni and friends to celebrate their time at SJU and to honor Coach Smith. It was so much fun to see so many former Johnnies back on campus. Thanks to all who made the trip back!
Our group now sits at 23-4 and is currently ranked #8 in the country. This past week, we were able to win two games at home and clinch the MIAC Playoff Championship for the first time since 2001! In doing so – we earned a spot in the NCAA tournament for the second straight year! The NCAA brackets were released yesterday and we earned the right to host. We are scheduled to tip off on Friday at 7:30pm against Northwestern (MN). The other two teams in our “pod” are UW-Oshkosh and Lake Forest (IL). Those two teams will play Friday at 5:30pm. The winning teams advance to Saturday and play at 7:00pm. It should be a fun weekend of basketball.
Thanks for your support – hope to see you this weekend and GO JOHNNIES!
