Former Sports Editor Alyssa Kress recalls missing a free throw at Cameron Indoor Stadium … in front of the Quakers.
We run through what was good, bad and ugly about the Quakers’ loss at Lafayette Saturday.
We caught up with the Leopards’ head coach, who in 1995 inherited a program coming off a 2-25 season and led Lafayette to back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in 1999 and 2000.
