24-18 'Saders at the half, Manis with 11 - who will emerge as the reliable 2nd and 3rd option on offense is the big question with our team Rider is 0-2 so far on the season losing to Princeton (they're good) and at UVM (they're bad) on Friday night.
Rider fighting back - they are playing their 3rd game the year (all against teams playing their first regular season game). They are out-rebounding HC 26-25 so far. 3 PF each on Manis and Exemma and 2 PF on Swords. That could mean problems in the 4th quarter.
HC wins 71-61. Nice season opening win for he Lady Crusaders. Manis caught a long pass alone under the basket and just dibbled out the last 5 second...good sportsmanship. Manis 24 pts / 9 reb Labarbara 12 pts / 2 reb (8 of 8 on free throws) Pedi 13 pts / 5 reb Swords 12 pts / 8 reb It looks like they are finding a way to make it more than a one person offense.
From my sportswriting days, one must be careful when speaking of a women's team. For example if the men are the "Bulls" I do not think it would be acceptable to refer to that school's women players as the "Cows."
I'll never forget the time Bob F. told his listeners after a game that he would be at the next men's game, and Jeremy Leachen would be "handling the women"........That's a pretty tame comment for 4acre, actually!
