There was no rush to go watch the Bucs vs. Rams football game on television Monday night, when the men’s basketball team went into double overtime against Widener University.

People were sitting at the edge of their seats after the Cavaliers went into their first overtime against the Widener Pioneers. “Go white” and “Defense” were some of the chants shouted from the people in the semi-crowded bleachers in the Dix on Center.

Ty Teasley, first-year forward, had no hesitation slamming baskets every chance he was given, while the Cav’s tough defense fought off the Pioneers’ aggressive offense.

Dave Cloud, junior, said, “I was debating on whether or not I should go to the game; however, I was glad I went because our basketball team put on a really good show.”

After evening up the score in the first overtime, the Cav’s managed to go into double overtime. At this point in the game, victory could have been declared by either team, but the Cav’s fought back and beat the Pioneers by three points.

It was a back and forth battle between the two teams until the very end; however, Cabrini shoved Widener into a bitter defeat with a minute left in the game.

John Ferrise, senior, said, “It was a really intense game, and our team performed extremely well to the very end.”

An entire game and two overtimes later, the Cav’s strolled off the court with a final score of 95 to 92, after Monday’s game against the Widener University Pioneers.

The Cav’s next home game will be on Wednesday, Dec. 5 against Wesley College at 8 p. m.
