The dream lived on for just a bit longer this afternoon at Mercyhurst University. Although the Mercyhurst University Men’s Basketball team lost their Elite Eight game, they had a great show of support from their fellow Lakers.
Many students gathered in the campus’ new Irish pub, The Roost, to cheer on the team while watching a live stream of the game. One student saying this gathering is great for community building and showing school spirit. “Everyone here at Mercyhurst is always supportive of our athletics, but to get this far and be able to have this opportunity and to have a space to support them is a once in a lifetime experience and a first for us at Mercyhurst,” said Vincent Marrazzo, student government president.
