Holy Cross Basketball to Unveil 2016 Patriot League Championship Banner Sunday

Holy Cross to raise championship banner on Sunday

The Holy Cross Crusaders men’s basketball team will celebrate their 2016 Patriot League Championship by unveiling its 2016 NCAA Tournament banner prior to Sunday’s game against Quinnipiac at the Hart Center. 

“What we were able to accomplish last year meant a lot to the entire Holy Cross community. Our guys were able to step up their play and come through when it counted in the postseason. We look forward to celebrating last season’s accomplishments prior to our game against Quinnipiac on Sunday,” said Holy Cross head coach Bill Carmody. 

The game is set for 1 p.m. with the ceremony taking place prior to the game.  

The 2016 Title Run 

Last season, the Crusaders entered the Patriot League Tournament as a number nine seed before winning four straight road games to win their sixth Patriot League Championship. 

They became the lowest seeded team to ever win the title, as well as begin the first team to ever win four road games in the tournament. 

Following the conference tournament, the Crusaders advanced to the First Four of the NCAA Tournament where they beat Southern 59-55 for the school’s first NCAA Tournament win since 1953. 

Holy Cross would face top-seeded Oregon in the next round where their improbable run would come to an end.
