The men’s basketball team has seen various changes in its lineup as the coaches attempt to find the ensemble with the best chemistry. The team has rotated its starting lineups in the last three games.

Since the start of the new semester, the Cavaliers, led by coach John Dzik, have dropped two games by big numbers. After succumbing to the hands of Gwynedd-Mercy College and Neumann College, the team barely beat Wesley College in an overtime win.

Cabrini went on the road to Eastern University and defeated them 70-65 on January 26th 2004.

The men’s basketball team has been struggling to find the necessary rhythm to catapult to the top in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference. The Cabrini’s men’s basketball record is 8-7, 3-4 in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference, which places them at the bottom of the PAC.

Many players have received ample amounts of playing time during Cabrini’s “self-discovery” period. The constant removal of players off the court has to frustrate players and ruin any potential recovery of their mistakes on the court.

Kris Pittman said, “Everyone knows that coach Dzik is switching things around to find out what’s going to work best for the team at the start of games and we as players understand that.”

The men’s basketball team needs to acquire a constant go to group of players in order to continue to succeed in the future. Anthony Bennett said, “I don’t think there is one key player. It’s all 16 of us plus seven coaches.”

Another factor to the lineup changes that the Cavaliers have been experiencing is the ineligiblity of player Ben Easley. Easley was removed from the team as a result of academic reasons and will not be back on the team this season.

With the men’s basketball team’s season past the midpoint, Cabrini needs to pick up some wins and gain some much needed momentum for the playoffs. Most importantly, Cabrini’s Cavaliers need to establish a consistent lineup.
