The Cabrini mens basketball team looks to get the ball rolling, after last year’s run to the Elite Eight. Tuesday, October 15, 2013 began this year campaign for the Cabrini men’s Basketball team drive to the national championship. The Cavs enter this year’s season ranked No.4 in the nation according to D3 news. Blue and White lost five seniors, but return six key members including 2012-2013 CSAC player of the year, guard criminology major Aaron Walton-Moss.

“We have enough talent to win it all this year from the starting five to the last guy on the bench everyone on this team will have a role and can play,” Said guard Walton-Moss when asked about team expectations. “If we play right and up to our potential, we should have no problem winning the CSAC and getting back to Salem and winning it all.”

The Cavs finished last year’s season 25-6, tapping the teams fifth consecutive 20-win season, while also earning its 12 conference championship. The Cavs were led by 2012-2013 CSAC coach of the year Marcus Kahn, to another NCAA tournament berth where the Cavs defeated three top 20-teams, to make to their second consecutive trip to Salem for the elite eight. The Cavs fell short of making it back to the final four, by losing to No.2-ranked Amherst who were the eventual champions.

“We want to get back there we have unfinished business in Salem.” Walton-Moss said when asked about last year’s lost.”The loss still sits with me and I know it sits with my teammates and our coaches, that’s one of the many things that fuels our fire.”

The Cavs have retooled for the upcoming season with key returners big recruits and key transfers, the Cavs look poised to make a deep run in the CSAC and the NCAA tournament.

“We’re still a work in progress Coach is getting us there with the new plays and new system,” Said guard communication major Howard Blake when asked about the new team. “Right now were just grinding it out and trying to learn, but the team looks pretty good and the sky’s the limit with this team.”

The men will open the season against rival neighbor Eastern University in the battle of Eagle road, on Nov.19 at Eastern University at 8 p.m.
