Anything could happen, although I can't recall a Bucknell game ever being changed due to weather. They had two away games where bad weather prevented them from getting back to Lewisburg, but the games were still played. One was at Lehigh, the other the infamous game at Navy when that area had about 40 inches of snow.

There was a home game against American that was changed to the next day sometime around 06-09. I only remember this because it’s been one of the only games I have missed because I got off work for the original game day but couldn’t get off for the makeup day.

Holy Cross guard Drew Lowder is transferring. Interesting timing on the decision.

Wow, what a harsh blow for Holy Cross! I was watching him the other night and thinking about how the Crusaders could really rise with him over the next few seasons.

Yes, I thought he was definitely their best player. He held the ball too long and dribbled too much bit his talent is definitely there.

Bucknell has a scholarship.





Two reasons he is not coming to Lewisburg:

1. A transfer from one PL school to another cannot be given a scholarship.

2. He had been benched for multiple games at HC for attitude problems, and it didn't appear to be getting better. Even when not being benched, he was no longer in the starting lineup, even though he was better than his replacement.


The thread on Crossports about his transfer:

http://crossports.freeforums.net/thread/4898/drew-...


One other thing to keep in mind is that another HC freshman, Ryan Wade, is reportedly Lowecer's cousin. And Wade's father was Lowder's AAU coach. While Wade is not as good as Lowder, he looks like a solid PL player. It will be interesting to see if he joins Lowder at some point.

Lafayette added a transfer today, although it is unlikely to have a big impact. Specifically 6-7 SF Tomas Verbinskis transferred from Richmond. He was in his third year there - redshirted his first year, got hurt after one game his second year, and played 3 games (8 minutes) this year. He played his HS ball in Florida and apparently had offers from Richmond, Valpo, and FGCU.

He had been in the transfer portal since early December and only now landed a spot - which is very late in the game. He is likely taking the scholarship of Isaac Suffren, who transferred out last month.

How much eligibility does he have left?

There are a couple possibilities. By NCAA rule, he will be eligible after exams in December 2020 since he must do a year in residence at his new school before he plays Then he can play 1.5 years. However he can petition the NCAA for two different waivers:

1. He can request a waiver to not have to sit out the first semester of the upcoming season and play right from the beginning of the season. I think that is likely to be granted, given how little he has played.

2. He redshirted his first year and then played only one game the next year before an injury that reportedly was season-ending. In theory that would qualify him for a medical hardship waiver (often mistakenly called a medical redshirt). The only problem with that is that this year is his 3rd year in college. By rule, players are only allowed to play during their first five years in college - so getting a medical hardship waiver wouldn’t help under normal circumstances. However he could also petition the NCAA to be allowed to play during his 6th year. That sort of waiver has become almost automatic when the reason for a player missing two years was exclusively injury-related. However, because one of his two missed years was simply a decision by Richmond and him to not play his first year (to preserve a year of eligibility), it is questionable whether the NCAA would grant him a 6th year.

Having said that, it is very likely he will be on course to graduate from Lafayette no later than May of 2022, if not earlier. So I seriously doubt that LC or the PL would go along with a 6th year, allowing him to play until spring of 2023. Also, he may not be a major contributor and is unlikely to play beyond May 2022 (end of his 5th year) at the latest by mutual decision.

Colgate at Lafayette tipped at 11 am for “school day” at Kirby Arena. Raiders up 3 at the half.

It should be noted that LC trailed by a point with five seconds left, before Perry hit a three.

The Army-Holy Cross game in Worcester has been postponed until tomorrow afternoon due to a tragic accident in Florida involving eight HC crew members plus a coach. Vehicle was making a turn and struck by a pickup truck. One reported death and some very serious injuries. Prayers for all involved.

Thoughts are with the HC family..

Lehigh has to be puzzled seeing Navy score 88 points last night with only one of its big 3 in double figures. Two Freshmen, Daniel Deaver 25-9, and Sean Yoder 19, combined for exactly half of Navy's points.Place was lit every time Yoder hit a shot. Over 100 people there supporting him alone and they were loud.
