Over 20 alumni of the men’s basketball team revisited the court on Saturday, Nov. 16 to take part in in the annual alumni basketball game. This was a chance for the alumni to play in a competitive but spirited game and reminisce about the good times they shared at Cabrini.
A friendly competitive game was well played between a blue and white team, with the white prevailing in the end by a score of 70-67. “It is good to be back,” a 1998 graduate, John Mack said. “I am happy we won, otherwise I would have to hear about it all year.”
Even though many of the players have not been playing basketball competitively for a while they still kept the game exciting by executing plays. The players had energy and stamina that allowed the crowd to have a thrilling time. “It was fun to watch. I especially liked to see Gary Goldman come back and play,” a sophomore basketball fan, Shaun Smith said.
This game was also an opportunity for many of the alumni to get together and share fond memories. 2002 graduate, Gary Goldman said,”The most exciting part of the entire event was to see all the other alumni and catch up with old friends.”
For many of the alumni this is the only chance they get to still play. “I miss playing competitive basketball, this is a great opportunity to play again with Cabrini alumni,” Mack said.
2002 graduate Tim Gordon said, “It is nice to come back and see everyone and see how things have changed. I always enjoy coming back and look forward to it next year.”
