Cougar pride shows

It is time to say a few words about Saint Francis’ women’s basketball team.

First, the team is undefeated, with one game left in the regular season. The Cougars are 29-0, 17-0 in conference play.

Second, the players come pretty close to the ideal in college athletics. Almost certainly team members will go on to careers in which they won’t be playing basketball for big money. You won’t see Saint Francis players conducting news conferences announcing they are forgoing their senior year so they can go to the pros. They may go on to be coaches, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, teachers, lawyers and business executives.

Third, Saint Francis’ final regular season game is at home Saturday against the Goshen College Maple Leafs (4-25, 1-16). It would be nice if a lot of people, including those with no connection to Saint Francis, went and cheered on the mighty Cougars. An undefeated season is worth rooting for.
