Men’s basketball reaches
conference finals again
For the second year in a row,
Lycoming’s men’s basketball team
reached the Commonwealth Conference
championship game thanks to an 80-
78 upset of No. 2 seed Albright in the
conference semifinals. The Warriors
posted a 17-10 overall record and played
in a school record six overtime games.
Along the way, senior Jerald Williams
left an indelible mark on the NCAA
record book, as his 9.9 assists per game
led the NCAA across all divisions. He
also finished his career sixth in NCAA
Division III history with 828 assists and
10th with 334 steals. Both are Middle
Atlantic Conference records.
Women’s basketball
makes playoffs
With a 49-39 win over Albright on Feb.
12, the women’s basketball team clinched
a berth in the postseason for the first time
since 2000.
Although the Warriors lost their playoff
game, 72-55, to Elizabethtown on Feb. 17,
the team still enjoyed a remarkable run to
make the postseason. Despite not winning
a non-conference game and finishing
with an 8-17 overall record, the Warriors
notched an 8-10 mark in Commonwealth
Conference play, including a 70-62 upset
over Elizabethtown in December that
helped clinch the bid to the postseason.
Bukasa highlights plethora
of football accolades
After enjoying its second straight 8-2
season, the Warrior football team once
again brought in a plethora of postseason
awards. Junior linebacker Kabongo
Bukasa was named the MAC Defensive
Player of the Year.
Bukasa finished seventh in the league
with 7.8 tackles and 0.33 interceptions
per game. He was the only player in the
MAC in the top 10 in both categories,
helping him also earn Second Team
All-American honors from
the Beyond College Sports
Network. In addition, a record
five Warriors were named to
the
D3hoops.com
All-East
Region team. Senior defensive
end Nate Oropollo and junior
defensive tackle Dwight Hentz
were second-team picks while
Bukasa, senior guard Cody
Moyer and sophomore safety
Tanner Troutman were placed on
the third team.

Region by the National Soccer Coaches
Association of America.
The volleyball, women’s soccer,
