High-Def And Weekend Hoops

Hope everyone has a great weekend, and I hope everyone gets ESPNU.

The Lehigh women's hoops team (14-10, 6-3) will be playing at 2PM at first-place Army (16-8, 7-2) in their first-ever national TV appearance. I'm hoping to be able to go on the road to see this game in High-Def, be we'll just see about that.

Then you can either go to Stabler to see if the Lehigh men's team (11-12, 4-5) can make an important stand at home against Army (11-12, 4-5) or watch it on Patriot League All-Access.

Completing the trifecta against Army will be the wrestling match at Army at 4:00PM on Sunday. Lehigh is 11-12, just like the men's basketball team, and have to be dying to reach .500.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

It's admittedly the first I'd heard of this all-American team, but it's a great honor for senior C John Reese (Chi Psi), senior OL Jimmy Kehs (DU) and junior DL Brian Jackson (Chi Psi) to be included on the same team as players from FBS schools such as Colorado, Miami (Fl), Oklahoma State and others. Congratulations to all three!

Also potentially lost in the fanfare about recruiting is another nugget of information: that senior WR Pete Donchez was saluted at the Lehigh Valley chapter of the National Football foundation this past weekend. Of interest to all those bleeding Brown & White will be the following:

Donchez, who was recently honored by the Patriot League for a 4.0 GPA during the fall semester, had an option to return for a fifth year at Lehigh. Instead, he has accepted a job offer in the global finance division of IBM.
