Final: St. John's 6, Virginia 5
What a game. St. John's hit a two-out, two-strike home run in the eighth inning to take the lead. Virginia suffered through a 1-2-3 inning in the ninth, and a team riding with momentum is now under significant pressure entering Monday's elimination game.
"It was a difficult loss," Coach Brian O'Connor said. "We had our opportunities to win, and didn't do it. But this is why you go 2-0 in the tournament. You have another opportunity tomorrow to win the championship. And as I told the team after the game, this team has bounced back all year long. They haven't let losses affect them."
The players were confident, too, that this loss would not cripple them.
What do you think? I'll have plenty of blog posts tomorrow, but I want your thoughts. Are you concerned? Still confident? E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or write comments below. And please continue checking Cavaliers Journal for all your coverage.
