How bad is Sacred Heart? Since joining the RPI-challenged and very triangular
NEC back in 1999, they haven't even made
the eight-team conference tourney. But last night at Albany, New England's favorite guarantee-game punchline snuck by a program tabbed by some national (cough) pundits to make a big splash. The Pioneers were led by a gentle Trinidadian giant who outscored everyone else in the RACC and stoically sank two winning freebies to ice the upset. Mr. Trim's had trouble with injuries and motivation in his four-plus years, and a monster game like this could be just what the guy needs to turn things around.And don't jump off the Albanywagon just yet, sports fans. They're probably reeling from the national (cough)
attention they've received (hack)
. This loss will be good for them... underdogs, Great Danes especially, need to stay hungry.
