It is about time the Lady Cavs got some attention on campus.
Much like the men’s basketball team a year ago, the Lady Cavs just completed a season of epic proportions.
A 22-3 record overall. An undefeated CSAC record of 16-0. A 17-game winning streak to close the season.
The team is simply unbelievable.
The Lady Cavs have not been one to grab attention in recent seasons. It has been since 2009 that the Lady Cavs were the class of the CSAC.
But this season, the Lady Cavs are dominating behind a core of players who have familiarity on and off the court. The chemistry this team possesses is incredible.
One of the aspects that made the men’s team such an appealing and exciting team to watch was the smooth style of play they brought to the court. Watch the way the Lady Cavs have played this season and you will notice very similar traits between the two teams.
The Lady Cavs are a team that takes smart shots. They are a team that prides themselves on spreading the ball around with crisp perimeter passing. They let defense create offense.
They might be all of the old cliches of sports. But they are working for the Lady Cavs.
Now the Lady Cavs are where they can really prove who they are. This team certainly seems destined to win a championship. But the playoffs are always different then the regular season and early exits from CSAC play have haunted recent seasons for the team.
But that is what makes their challenge so much greater and fires the team up even more.
They want to win. They want a championship. And they will go to any lengths necessary to achieve the goals set at the beginning of the season.
So with a CSAC title in their sights, perhaps it is time that the Lady Cavs get some much-deserved attention. They are turning into the top threat in the CSAC, not only this season but in the future as well.
A championship at this point would simply be icing on the cake to a remarkable and memorable season.
