PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The run continues for the Cabrini Cavaliers. They have advanced into the ‘Sweet 16’ of the Division III NCAA Tournament for a third straight season.
After beating Ohio Wesleyan last weekend 84-81, the Cavaliers are headed back to Ohio to battle the College of Wooster on Saturday night. This will be their third straight road game in the tournament.
The 24-5 Cavaliers are being led by one of the best all-around players in the country in sophomore guard Aaron Walton-Moss. A 6’1″, Camden High product, Walton-Moss averages 14.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game, while shooting 52% from the field. He had a signature game in last weekend’s second round win, playing all forty minutes while scoring 23 points, pulling down 13 rebounds and dishing out nine assists.
“He’s tough to guard,” Cabrini head coach Marcus Kahn tells KYW Newsradio. “They try big men, they’ve tried guards on him. I’m sure Wooster will throw both at him this weekend, they’ll double and triple-team him like every other team has. He finds a way to get it done. He’s leaving the time-out on Saturday night (against Ohio Wesleyan), towards the end, and said, ‘I’m not letting us lose.’ And he didn’t. He’s that type of player that can give us that.”
