Cabrini Cavs bring school spirit back to campus after winning streak secures ‘Sweet 16’ spot once again

What do people think of when they hear “Sweet 16”?

Many immediately would say a girl’s birthday when she turns 16 and enters the ladder of her teenage years, but any sports fan holds this phrase in high regard.

When a basketball team makes it to the “Sweet 16” in the NCAA tournament, which is held every year, it means that team is one of 16 teams left to fight for the national championship.

This is quite an accomplishment and one that our very own Cabrini men’s basketball team has achieved for the second time in the program’s history.

In a post-game press conference after their second round win against SUNY-Purchase, head coach Marcus Kahn held back tears as he announced how proud he was of his team. Not only is he proud but the entire campus is elated with the accomplishments of this team.

School spirit is something this campus may lack at times but victories like this act as a magnet, pulling the campus together, allowing us to show our true colors of blue and white. Both the first and second round games were held over spring break and yet students piled into the bleachers to cheer on the team.This team is achieving things this campus has rarely seen.

The team came back from halftime deficits in both of their tournament games so far, leaving fans gripping their seats and begging the clock to move faster.

The blue and white have reigned supreme so far in this tournament as they travel to Wooster, Ohio to face No. 5, The College of Wooster on Friday, March 11.

Though far away we hope for the best as they work to breach unchartered territory the program has yet to achieve. How sweet it would be to advance to the “Elite 8.”
