No. 20 Iowa State beats Mount St. Mary's 73-55 | The Herald

The Mount fell behind early, down 19-4 nine minutes in but managed to rally to within 10 midway through second half. But poor shooting 30% total again kept any thoughts of an upset away.

Brothers square off as MSM visits Iowa State

The Associated Press picked up on the Long Reunion in Ames. It is a great story that Elijah gets to play against his older brother.



Word from the Mount is that Elijah has had a great offseason. He looked solid Friday night at West Virginia (14 points, 5 rebounds) but was slowed by foul trouble and struggled against the WVU traps at time.



Should be fun tonight.

Headlines from 20 years ago

On this date 20 years ago the Mount beat Georgia Tech 71-69 at the Omni in Atlanta.
Here were some of the national headlines from the nation's papers the next day.....

Georgia Tech Upset By Whom?  - LA Times

Mount St. Mary's Stuns No. 21 Ga. Tech At Buzzer - Sun Sentinel

Mount St. Mary's Upsets Georgia Tech - The Bryan Times

Mount St. Mary's Stuns Georgia Tech - Philly.com

If you know the true story behind Rick Barry, the Mount and Coach Jim Phelan, you'll also find it ironic that Barry's son Drew played for the Jackets.

Up next for UW men’s basketball: Mount St. Mary’s | The Seattle Times

Up next for UW men’s basketball: Mount St. Mary’s | The Seattle Times:



This article has a few errors and a few typos but it does give the Mount more respect than they are used to. Hopefully, UW is having as much trouble as Percy Allen is getting back into gear after their trip to China.
