It was a long day Monday for Monmouth prior to Tuesday's NCAA Tournament play-in game with Hampton at the Dayton Arena.
Monmouth flew from Newark to Cincinatti (why didn't I think of that) and then boarded a BUCKEYE charter bus for Dayton.
The Hawks first worked out at Wright State, attended a Press conference, and then practiced at the Dayton Arena.
Chris Kenny, Marques Alston, John Bunch, and Tyler Azzarelli were the speakers for Monmouth as well as coach Dave Calloway.
Kenny explained for the 2 zillionth time about his layup that beat FDU. He told me later, maybe in 10 years he'll say he dunked it. Now who would believe that???
The Dayton arena is a big time facility.When Monmouth practiced, MONMOUTH HAWKS, was shown on each of four large scoreboards . It's a little game in a big setting.
There is a fan bus leaving from Boylan Gym at 4am Tuesday. You'll all be on it..right?? It returns from Dayton 7 a.m. the next day.
Monmouth will shoot around again at the Arena Tuesday morning and there there will be a pep rally at the team's hotel, the Holiday Inn South (Dayton) at about 330-4 p.m.
The cheerleaders and pep band are here.
Tip off is 730 pm (ESPN with Brent Musburger). Winner plays 3 p.m. Friday at the Wachovia Center in Philly vs. Villanova.
