GP really has them playing hard , they seem to get every 50/50 ball . They showed great improvement over the last week , there is a much better flow to the offense . Great job by the Purps !!!!

Team and staff will fly directly to Toronto and avoid the super storm in Buffalo!
DII D'Youville for whatever reason is on Wednesday before we head to NYC to face SJU at Carnesecca Arena at 2PM Saturday.

I doubt if NU has a charter plane. How do any of the basketball players over 6'4" fit into an economy seat on a commercial plane today? They are brutal especially fora 5-hour flight!
