Tuesday night was just not a good night.
"We've had some good nights this season," Generali said after Tuesday's 101-66 loss to Sacred Heart. "Tonight wasn't one of them."

"They're athletic, they have talent, they're well-coached," Hearts head coach Jon Carroll said.
Senior Justin Strielkauskas kept firing away for Holy Cross, whether it was from up close or from downtown behind the three-point line. He also showed toughness, continuously going at senior big Tyrn Flowers, even though he swatted several of Strielkauskas' shots away.
Sophomore Roman Pender provided some solid shooting from the outside. There's also sophomores Nyzair Rountree, DeAndre Wallace, and Marcellus Gomes. Seniors Strielkauskas, Jonathan Mowatt and Dyllan Tyson are looked upon for leadership.

"I think, honestly, they should have won that game last time, the way they played," Hearts super senior Mustapha Heron said.
"I think the first time, they were probably looking over us," Generali said. "We caught them off-guard."
There was no letdown this time from Sacred Heart, but that doesn't mean Holy Cross isn't a solid team. The Crusaders are 12-5, with all five losses coming in the rugged NVL Brass Division. This team will be pain in the postseason, and in future seasons to come.
