When worlds collide

Tom Housenick of the Daily Item echoes what we told you back in early January. Bucknell and Holy Cross appear to be on a collision course.

In his weekly hoops column, Housenick does what coaches and players don't dare to-- he looks ahead to that possible final.

A good piece, though we must disagree with Tom on one thing. He writes:
Holy Cross still doesn't have an established point guard to replace Meade as a coach on the floor and a captain. Sophomore Torey Thomas has been the starter when healthy, but freshman Pat Doherty, the league's rookie of the year, has been solid in Thomas' absence.
In Tom's defense, it is easy to think it looks that way from afar. Tom covers Bucknell. He has not seen HC since the first week of conference play. But the fact is, what looks like no established point guard is actually the emergence of two. Doherty and Thomas have been sharing time very effectively since Thomas got healthy and their differing styles of play allows Willard to shift gears by simply making a substitution.

Having two guys who are playing as well as these two at the point is quite a luxury. It is not at all unlike the performance Bucknell coach Pat Flannery has been getting from Abe Badmus and freshman John Griffin, who has been solid running the Bison when Badmus gets a breather.
