Re: Where Are They Now? Former Player Results and News

Bonzie Colson, Sr? He was a high school coach last I heard. Not sure what he's doing now. Former college assistant. Last position was New Bedford High. Stepped down last year with the intent to more closely follow his son's career at Notre Dame. Jr however got injured and sat out most of this season.

Motivation for three remaining games:

Dayton - win the A-10 regular season outright.

St Joe's - for the seniors and hopefully also for an undefeated home record

Davidson - for NCAA seed purposes

What was up with EC missing all five free throw attempts? If he had made a few, they got out of there in regulation.

Team seems off these past two games. Not showing that same drive and effort. Getting out-hustled. Hurley needs to get them back on track and finish the season strong.
