The Dukes travel to Olean NY to face St. Bonaventure after their toughest loss of the season. We all know that the loss to UMass left a bad taste in the mouths of the Dukes, especially Ron Everhart.
I heard Shawn James quoted on ESPN Radio's "Inside Look" segment on Wednesday morning. James talked about how tough Coach Everhart is during practice, even after the Dukes have played well and won games. This wasn't much of a surprise, but I can only imagine what the practices have been like since the loss to UMass. I would bet the farm that the Dukes got in a lot of extra time shooting foul shots.
The Bonnies are in the midst of a 6 game losing streak and have yet to win a game in A10 play. On top of that, St. Bonaventure head coach Mark Schmidt has suspended one of his most talented players Zarryon Fereti (pictured right) for disciplinary reasons. Fereti was suspended from practice yesterday and it is not yet known if he will play on Saturday. Game time on Saturday is 4pm at the Reilly Center.
