The men’s basketball team has recruited two new players this year, both from Philadelphia University. They were originally sought out when they were in high school by Coach Dzik, and later decided that Cabrini was the school for them.

Jim Good, 21, is from Sewell, N.J. He attended St. Joe’s, and went on to Philadelphia University to play for a division two school. Good came to Cabrini “late in the game,” Dzik said.

Good knew that he could get more playing time at Cabrini than he could at Philadelphia University. This was a factor in helping his decision to transfer. Good played in his first game as a Cavalier Saturday, Dec. 4. He was on the sideline with his new team due to a partial tear in his rotator cuff. The team was glad to have him on the court.

The other recruit is named Jim McMahon, who is also 21 years old. He is from Havertown, Pa. and graduated from Haverford High School. As a high school student, McMahon was thinking about which college to go to and Cabrini was a possibility for him.

With Philadelphia also as an option, McMahon changed his mind when having the advantage of going to a Division II school. Like Good, McMahon had limited playing time at Philadelphia University and knew there was a lot of potential court time for him if he transferred to Cabrini.

McMahon has already started playing in several games. Last week, he led the Cavaliers in a game vs. Arcadia, scoring a total of 19 points. He has already brought a great deal to the team.

Aside from basketball, these two men came to Cabrini to get a good education. They both have strong academic goals, and wanted to choose a school that was appropriate for fulfilling these needs.

McMahon has been pleased with the small atmosphere of Cabrini. “All the guys are nice and the trip that we just took got to get to know each other better,” McMahon said. Spending over five hours on a bus brought the team closer together when they were playing in Myrtle Beach and Virginia for a tournament.

These two players will bring a lot to the team, and have been putting effort into everything they do. McMahon and Good both have great attitudes, and are a pleasure to have as a part of the men’s basketball team at Cabrini. They are both willing to do whatever it takes to make it to the top.

These men will contribute to the team in numerous ways. “They are both nice young men, great students and excellent players,” Dzik said. Cabrini benefits every year from new players, and with McMahon and Good joining the team, the Cavs are sure to do well this season.
