The Saint Francis Red Flash are fresh off their first regular season title since 1991. Head coach Rob Krimmel was just named conference coach of the year on Tuesday. But an NEC Championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament would be the icing on the cake.
They’ll have that opportunity beginning with an NEC first round game against Bryant Wednesday night at DeGol Arena.
The Red Flash have had a great following of a fans, including super fan Nick Damin of Ebensburg.
“I just think this community is close knit and this university is an easy place to rally behind,” Damin said. “As the games got more exciting and the anticipation got bigger more people came out, more people came out.”
The Red Flash are the top-seed in the tournament. They’ll host Bryant at 7 p.m.
