Crusaders playing better since humbling loss

Alvernia men playing better since humbling loss

READING - The Alvernia men's basketball team has won three straight games following a blowout loss at Stevenson in November. The Crusaders most recent victory was over rival Albright.

Head coach Mike Miller appreciates that his team has caught fire after an ugly game. He didn't think that his team fully accepted that they would get the opposition's best shot every time they took the floor this year. Recall, Alvernia went to the NCAA Tournament last year following a MAC Commonwealth championship.

But the Stevenson loss put things into perspective for his squad, and ever since, they'll rolled out wins over conference foes Lycoming and Albright while also taking practice more seriously.

The Crusaders will be on the road for much December before returning home just before New Years.
