The Cabrini College basketball team made it to the championship game last year with an outstanding record of 31-2 with the help of the team.
One of the key parts to a championship team is the inside game, in particular dominating the paint and controlling the rebound game. Senior history major Goran Dulac finds himself right in the middle of that aspect.
“To be on the team is very rewarding,” Dulac said. “I’ve played on a winning team all four years that has made progress. That’s all I can ask for.”
Dulac, a senior from Levittown, Pa., is the starting center for the Cavs.
There were a lot of highlights that occurred during last year’s basketball season that made the season such a good season.
“My favorite moment is when we made it to the national championship game,” Dulac said.
Dulac is entering his fourth season as a large part of the Cavs success. Since Dulac was a freshmen – Dulac started in 26 games in his freshman season – he felt comfortable with his team and continued to understand how his team and him functioned. That contributed to the success of the team over the years.
“I just had to play better and more confident each year,” Dulac said. By these morals, Dulac matured throughout his years at Cabrini to grow and become the player he is today.
“The coaches just told me to become more dominant on the block next year.” Dulac said.
So this season, Dulac plans to become more aggressive and control the block offensively and defensively.
Since its Goran’s last year playing basketball at Cabrini, he plans to definitely finish his basketball career strong willed and positive. The last season had a lot of good highlights on Dulac’s behalf and this season he’s hoping for an even better year.
“The season is going well so far but we are not where we want to be yet,” Dulac said. “I think we brought some very talented players that will have great careers here”
As an upperclassman, Dulac is trying to be the mentor to the youth on the team. With so many new faces on the team this season, Dulac thinks the chemistry of the team is coming together and will go a long was in the long run.
“Chemistry is actually pretty good,” Dulac said. “We have a lot of new guys and we have gelled pretty well but we still ways to go.
“I think our strong points are our versatility skill and size and our weakness is that we are pretty young at some spots, but with work we will get rid of that.”
