PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It has already been a remarkable season for the Cabrini College men’s basketball team.
The Cavaliers have soared to the #2 ranking in all of Division III thanks to a 19-0 record (13-0 in the Colonial States Athletic Conference). This success becomes even more impressive when you consider the Cavaliers have had to overcome some significant injuries.
“We’ve been without what was our two leading scorers in Aaron Walton-Moss (ankle) and A.J. Picard (foot),” Cabrini head coach Marcus Kahn tells KYW Newsradio. “Right now we’ve got (43) points a game on crutches right now, sitting on our bench. So we’ve had to do things differently.”
Walton-Moss is easily one of the best players in the country. The 6’1″ junior guard is scoring 26 points a game, pulling down 11.2 rebounds and dishing out 6.2 assists per contest. He has missed the last couple of games. Picard, a 6-foot senior, averaged 17 points a game before being sidelined ten games into the season.
