Tough night for rest of league
HC's starting guards -- Kevin Hamilton, Keith Simmons and Torey Thomas, who combined to shoot 51 percent in HC's first two games -- were a combined 13 for 42 from the field.Hamilton was playing hurt, nursing a hip injury. But the Crusaders were brutal from the arc, shooting 4-for-23.
The Crusaders three big men -- starters Alex Vander Baan, Kevin Hyland and reserve Tim Clifford combined for only 16 points.
This is the problem Holy Cross will have on some nights until it develops more of an inside game to compliment its stellar group of guards.
Another problem, uncharacteristic poor defense. Harvard shot 53 percent from the field against the Crusaders.
Could somebody explain to me how the Globe and the Herald could both ignore this game?
