Oswego, N.Y. — The SUNY Oswego Lakers are dancing in the Sweet 16. After winning both the first and second round of the Division 3 NCAA tournament at the Max Zeil gym, the team traveled to Illinois to play Marietta College.
The three point shot is a large part of the Lakers’ offense. Known for his typical successful shooting stroke, senior guard Quinn Carey is ready to find his shot again after struggling with it in past games.
“I know it’s probably my biggest strength on the court. I don’t let a game where I shot it poorly affect me,” Carey said.
Even if the shots aren’t falling, there are things Carey knows he can do to help the team win.
“There’s a lot of things you can do to impact a game; defense end, rebounding, making the extra pass to make sure your teammates are staying involved,” Carey said.
Head Coach Jason Leone was named SUNYAC Coach of the Year for his efforts this season. This is the fourth time Leone has been honored with this award. His strong coaching and leadership have the Lakers feeling confident for the game on March 8th.
“We all feel confident in coaches game plans, enjoying every step of the way but we know we’re not done yet, we want to keep this train rolling,” Carey said.
