Action Packed Home Stand
The Lions and Lady Lions have been showing the conference what they are made of all season including during a very strong performance at home. Between the two they have combined for a total of a 6 games home winning streak not letting anyone get in their way. The home stand started off with both teams facing off against PSU Schuylkill. The ladies took the court first and came out expecting nothing but a win as an outcome but unfortunately fell short of their goal as they lost 76-63. The men would take the court next also expecting nothing but a win. They were challenged by the team from PSU Schuylkill but came out on top with an impressive win in overtime 97-88. Next the women would face a hard opponent in undefeated PSU Fayette. Coming off of the hard loss to Schuylkill the women hit the court with the determination to hand Fayette their first loss of the season. They did just that as they fought hard and came away with the 70-61 win. The men would follow the women also with a hard test at hand as they too took on PSU Fayette. The team from Fayette would challenge the men who would not give in as they walked off the court with yet another win. The women faced another challenge coming into the next game trying to move up in the division standings as they faced a division rival PSU Hazleton. The game was back and forth until the Lady Lions from Scranton would put the game away claiming the 71-62 win and the number one spot in their division putting them in great position for a possible play-off berth. The men also faced another test in PSU Hazleton as the game came down to the last 6 seconds but Scranton would prevail in the end winning 75-72 maintaining their top spot in the division. The women are currently 9-5 overall, 6-4 in the conference and also first place in the north division of the PSUAC. The men are currently 14-6 overall, 9-3 in the conference and first place in the north division of the PSUAC.
