Men's Basketball To Celebrate 2015-16 Championship, Unveil Banner
WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross men’s basketball team will unveil its 2016 NCAA Tournament banner this coming Sunday, Dec. 11. The ceremony will take place prior to the Crusaders’ game against Quinnipiac at the Hart Center at the Luth Athletic Complex, which will tip off at 1:05 p.m. Be sure to arrive early to see the ceremony.
Last spring, Holy Cross went on an improbable run to claim the sixth Patriot League Tournament title in school history. Entering the postseason as the No. 9 seed in the conference tournament, the Crusaders won four consecutive road games to win the Patriot League crown. Holy Cross made conference history by becoming the lowest seeded team to ever win the title, in addition to being the first team to ever win four road games in the tournament.
Following their championship run in the Patriot League, the Crusaders went to Dayton, Ohio, to take on Southern in the First Four of the NCAA Tournament. Holy Cross posted a 59-55 victory over the Jaguars in that game, good for the school’s first NCAA Tournament win since 1953.
“What we were able to accomplish last year meant a lot to the entire Holy Cross community,” said head coach Bill Carmody. “Our guys were able to step up their play and come through when it counted in the postseason. We look forward to celebrating last season’s accomplishments prior to our game against Quinnipiac on Sunday.”
