All in the family
This quote from Ted Bettencourt, the former Holy Cross player and brother of Bucknell's Kevin, says a lot about the respect that has become apparent between the Bucknell and Holy Cross programs. It comes from a Boston Globe story about Kevin, who is from Massachusetts:
"Of course I love Holy Cross, but I root for Bucknell because Kevin's wearing their uniform. When he finally takes it off, I'll be a Holy Cross fan again. I would have been happy if he'd gone to Holy Cross, but I'm proud of what he's done and I have a lot of respect for Pat Flannery, who congratulated me on my career back in 1996 at the Patriot League tournament. I never forgot that."
