The Moravian College Men’s basketball season came to an end on Saturday, but not before leaving their names in the record book. The Greyhounds, who had won back-to-back Landmark Conference champions, also won their first ever NCAA DIII Tournament game in the opening round. Unfortunately, their run would end in the second round, finishing with 20 wins on the season. This mark not only matched their total win count from last winter, but also tied the school record. Head coach Justin Potts, is only in his 4th year and has turned this program around in quite an impressive fashion. The win was the 70th of his career. It was a great victory for the team, who saw 4 players score in double digits. Senior Jimmy Murray also reached 1,500 career points becoming the 7th player in school history to reach that milestone.
The team would play No. 10 Hamilton falling 83-72 and finishing with a record of 20-9. As a team the Hounds set marks for points with 2,443, field goals made with 843, three-pointers made with 328 and assists with 477.
Individually, the team will need to fill some pretty big shoes next season, graduating 3 key players:
Oneil Holder had 537 points this winter, which is the fifth highest single season in the Greyhounds' record book. He finishes his career as the school record holder in games played with 110, and he is third all-time with 1,660 points and sixth with 714 rebounds.
Jimmy Murray would finish his career as the school record holder with 218 three-pointers made and fifth all-time with 1,522 points in 103 games.
Will Brazukas would end the season with 103 assists, tied for the seventh best season in school history, and 333 career assists, fifth all-time in 107 games played, second in school history.
