We started slow, got on a role, and now are trying to peak for the play-off run. That is how I would explain our year so far.
This year’s team is one of my favorite teams I have coached in my 25 years at Moravian College. We are working to return to the NCAA tournament. We have the tools in place; we just have to put them all together as we enter the difficult stretch of our conference schedule.
We go on the road for the next two weekends, which will determine if we have what it takes to be a play-off caliber team and ultimately a championship team.
Ally Blair is having a great year. Ally has matured and improved her game every year. She has proven that hard work, determination and positive energy does pay off. Ally, Hilary Murray and Cassie Phillips have been tremendous leaders as seniors on this team. I am thankful they are our leaders, on and off the court.
We won our own Starter’s tournament in early January and I am hoping that success will carry over as we hit the road. We will be back in Johnston Hall on February 3rd and 4th, with the 4th being our annual Alumni and Pink Out game.
Thanks for all your support and I look forward to seeing you on the road or back at home soon!
