The men’s basketball team is on a hot streak. The Lasers hold the second spot in the GNAC with a record of 13-2 in conference play and are 16-6 overall.
The team’s first loss in the GNAC came on February 3, against the 14th ranked Johnson & Wales Wildcats, who have lost just one game all season. Senior captain Logan Liberty, said the Lasers like to, “dominate team play.” Liberty commented on the fact that their success can be attributed to similar stat lines between all players. “We are able to adjust to many situations on the court,” he said.
Head Coach Aaron Galletta is in his 10th season and recently won his 100th conference game as head coach of the Lasers.
“The all around consistency of the coaching staff helps everyone get familiarized with the game plans, and is also a major reason for the team’s success within the league,” said Liberty.
“Success on the road is important,” said Liberty. The Lasers are 9-2 on the road, however, their remaining schedule consists of all conference games.
Their goal is to finish strong and guarantee a top seed in the GNAC tournament. The team’s Senior Day is Saturday, February 20 when the team play host to Suffolk University.
