Rewind about three hours and travel to the gymnasium at Mount Saint Michael's Academy where the Lehman College Lightning men's basketball team, in front of maybe 100 fans, was battling Hunter College in a crucial conference game. The game was a nail biter, coming down to the final possessions. Lehman squeaked out a 61-60 win on a last second layup by a senior, Dwight Nangle, who has a precious few games to play in his college career and who will be sitting in class during the week prepareing for the "real world" that inevitably awaits. Seeing the team after that game, high-fiving and congratulating each other? Now that was pure joy; strict love for the game. That is what Lehman Athletics is, and can be about, on any given day.
Who wouldn't want to experience that?
