Hopkins makes tournament for 5th straight year

March 01, 1994|By From Staff Reports

Johns Hopkins will make its fifth straight appearance in the NCAA Division III men's basketball tournament, playing at Lebanon Valley on Saturday in the second round.

The Blue Jays (20-6, 10-3 in the Centennial Conference) received the third seed in the Middle Atlantic Region and a first-round bye in the 40-team field.

Lebanon Valley (23-4) won the Middle Atlantic Conference championship on Saturday and earned the second seed in the region, so it will play host to Hopkins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Annville, Pa.

Last season the Flying Dutchmen knocked the Blue Jays out of the NCAA tournament in a first-round game held in Baltimore. Hopkins shot just 35 percent from the field and was hurt by foul trouble inside in the 53-49 loss. Lebanon Valley held a 34-18 rebounding advantage.

Hopkins also placed two players on the All-Middle Atlantic District second team: seniors Luke Busby (15.6 points) and Frank Grzywacz (15.5 points, 6.9 rebounds).

Busby made the All-Centennial Conference first team, and Grzywacz and teammate Lou Sabad (13.2 points, 7.3 rebounds) were selected to the second team.
