It's hard to be disappointed with historic performances, but the wrestling team did not meet expectations over the weekend. On Sunday, the Bulls participated at the Penn State Open, a tournament that featured several top-25 teams with a number of elite wrestlers.
A poor second-half performance proved to be the downfall for the women's basketball team, despite the 34th career double-double by senior forward Kourtney Brown. The Bulls (4-4) lost to Duquesne (6-1), 67-55 at Alumni Arena in a non-conference battle on Monday night. The first 20 minutes of the game went back and forth; the score was tied seven times, and there were five lead changes.
Sometimes a team has to experience the pain of failure before it can reach its full potential. In some regards, this season was a success for the Bulls (18-16, 5-11 Mid-American Conference) even though they fell to Ohio (18-11, 10-6 MAC), 3-0, in the quarterfinals of the MAC tournament. Bulls head coach Todd Kress thinks that despite exiting the tournament in the quarters for the second straight season, it could end up being a stepping stone for the team. "I have to give the credit to this team for the year we had," Kress said.
