St. Mary's defeat hometown rival Lancaster, 61-60



St. Mary's men's varsity basketball defeats Lancaster this past Saturday in a thrilling fashion.  Junior Eric Brown hit a 3-pointer in the final seven seconds to lift the Lancers over the Legends.  It was a great atmosphere as it was standing room only.  Leading the team to victory with game-highs were juniors Eric Brown and Christian Szablewski, both with 17 points, and junior Matt Ciezki tallying 16 points.  Our fan support and student section who themed the game "Red, White, and Blue" were outstanding, with students storming the court after the final seconds theatrics.  They head to Canisius, Wednesday, Jan 25th, in a triple header against MMA opponent and are back home on Friday, Jan 27th vs Cardinal O'Hara. 



Lancers open season with win over Fredonia


Men's basketball walked away from its home opener with a win over Fredonia.  The Lancers trailed by one at half but had a surge of scoring in the third quarter which secured a nice 10-pt lead throughout the remaining portion of the game.  Senior Daquan Hunt added some flare to the court as he dunked two crowd-roaring baskets. The student fan section really helped the Lancer atmosphere as they came decked out in white for the themed "White Out" game.
