GENESEO, N.Y. - After improving to 22-0 earlier in the evening, members of the SUNY Geneseo Women's Basketball team huddled around their cell phones on the team bus. On their tiny glowing screens was the live broadcast of ESPN's Sportscenter.
The squad was rewarded for its patience when Sportscenter co-host Kevin Connors selected the Knights as his "Star of the Night," recognizing the team for their incredible run of wins in the face of adversity.
Connors, an Ithaca alum, stayed true to his NCAA Division III roots by honoring Geneseo and after the feature aired tweeted, "@GeneseoWBB your story continues to inspire the college basketball world. Keep it going! #OneKnight."
The Knights will play on Saturday, traveling to New Paltz to battle their conference foe. Tip-off is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
