62 was fun.....

The Mount won for the eighth straight time 65-51 over Wagner at Knott Arena late Saturday afternoon on Turn Back the Clock Day.

Jeremy Goode keyed the win and is playing very well of late. But all-in-all it was a very sluggish Mount performance.

The good news is they can shoot 36% and win relitively easy against a conference opponent.

The Mounties struggled to ever really get opening offensively, sans about a six-minute stretch at the end of the first half and the start of the second half, when they really accounted for most of the final margin.

Kelly Beidler was once again a force. He ended in double figures in both points and rebounds for his fifth double-double of the year. He finished with 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Jean Cajou despite struggling from long range ended up with sixteen points.

The difference in the game may have been at the foul line. The Mount capitalized making 20-of-25 free throws, while the Seahawks were just 50% from the charity stripe.

So the Mount keeps winning, but they'll have to be better down the stretch then they were today. They play five of their final seven on the road and need to be sharper and crisper.

But still it's hard to argue with success. This eight-game winning streak is the second longest in Division I history for the Mount.

    1. There were no cheerleaders in '62
    2. The uniforms included the type of shorts the cheerleaders wore in the first half tonight - that is, the MEN'S uniforms!
    3. OMG - the lousy officials are finally NOT calling a million offensive charges in an NEC game.
    4. It is hard to get going when the competition is so lousy, I agree the Mount's offense was just not in sync tonight, but Wagner made at least 4 shots 'pure luck' and it is indeed unusual for Jean to be 0/6 from the 3.
