Drexel at home as part of a women's/men's double header. Currently 2-4 coming off a loss Sunday to LaSalle. Men have been off since last Wednesday's loss to PU.
KSC should be buzzing with football HC talk! Wonder if BrucieMac and/or Pres. Allison will be present? Shocked

Stream goes from choppy to blurry to frozen. From what I can tell Pards playing pretty well.

32-19 and doing well on the boards.
38-24 at the half. Leave Drexel open and they will hit 3s.
Drexel dropped football in 1973.

A late TO cost Lafayette the game. FTs missed but Drexel got the rebound. 2 Then 2 FTs made.
Drexel 73-70.

A winnable game was thrown away. We can't afford that. Collapse on the boards.

Referees are reviewing tape but it's over.

Final score: Drexel 74-70.

None of what you say is true, the game was lost because we did not do a good job at the foul line.

No idea what the stats are, the video screen did not operate, Nobody cares.

Looks like FOH has installed a different offense during the week off. We did not run much of our motion stuff at all in the second half. Xbo is correct, we lost this from the FT line. We were in the double bonus by mid half. Never saw such a thing with a FOH team. 14-30 we make them we maintain the lead all game. It was frustrating to watch.

Poor shooting overall and horrid foul shooting cost the game.Their Hack a Shack strategy paid off.

No. 299 in Sagarin. That's the lowest in the Patriot League and above only Dartmouth (311) of the Ivies.
It's a darn good thing we have the best coach in the league. Otherwise we might be under 300.

Man, very odd for a Fran team to shoot foul shots like that. I mean there were air balls. Come on, guys!

Andy, it was like a voodoo thing. There was a Drexel fan sitting on the bottom row, of the end zone stands (next to the Drexel bench). He was sitting by himself and each time we had someone at the foul line, just as they got ready to shoot, he would say something that sounded like "PING". The gym was silent when they went to the line and as they got ready to shoot the only thing you heard was his "PING". It definitely got into some of our guys heads.

"A couple rebounds that we didn't come up with, a couple loose balls, that's the difference in the game," Lafayette coach Fran O'Hanlon said. "But, I was proud of how we competed right from the start. That's a good basketball team, a strong basketball team, that we competed with."

Yeah that's the best 3-4 team around, and on the road.

If one guy saying "ping" really made a difference, three football players or other big guys should have sat around him and persuaded him to cease.

I spilled a coke on a heckling kid at a high school baseball game about 10 years ago. Problem solved.

Yellow shirt? He was visible on the stream, when the stream was visible.

The yellow shirt guy was a student who had the mop for that end of the court.  The Drexel guy was wearing black, front row, at the end of the bleachers.

OK practice up on your "PING" technique. We'll unleash you at the next home game.  Or maybe we can get the lady fan who does the "walawalwala" to no effect to change to "PING!"

That person appeared to have a physical (and possibly mental) handicap. He sat there by himself with his walker. It was a distraction, but, we just were mind numbingly inept from the charity stripe all night. Not a trait of an FOH team.

Her name was Pat Simonetta and unfortunately she died a few weeks ago, she was a realator and a long time Lafayette Basketball fan.

Sorry to hear that. She was a fixture in KSC for sure.
