UNC Asheville and UMass Video Recap

29 Nov

After three-straight days of basketball, the Cougars closed out tournament play at the inaugural Battle 4 Atlantis with a 2-1 record with victories over 2011 NCAA Tournament participant UNC Asheville (68-66) on Nov. 25 and UMass (85-61) on Nov. 26. They rebounded well from a tough opening-round loss to UCF, but were able to still give thanks and remain in the holiday spirit hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner with fans, boosters, family and friends after the game.

One thing great about extensive road trips, especially with a young, new team, is the bonding experience a six-day schedule can help your team build on its chemistry and camaraderie. Coach Cremins and his coaching staff recruit only the best kids first and players second. You’ll never see one without a smile on their face or enjoying the lighter things in life. It is a very tight-knit family and we thank our Cougar Club supporters and fans who joined us and made the trip possible.

Congratulations to freshman back-up point guard Anthony Stitt for knocking down a career-high 23 points against the UMass. Our freshmen are really making a huge impact early. Southern Conference play is ahead and CofC is off to a 5-1 start. We hope you will join us to pack the house at TD Arena against The Citadel on Dec. 1 and Chattanooga on Dec. 3. Until then, Go Cougars!! 🙂
