Cane Train derailed - Hurricanes fall to Montour in OT 50-43
Story | Post-Gazette
--- Corey Eggleston injured leg in
second quarter, doesn't play in third period. Trys it fourth quarter but is unable to go.

cleared out for Shawn Anderson but after being stopped on a drive he missed a jumper in
--- Canes score only 3pts in OT a three by Antonio Rudolph.
The 2011/12 Red Hurricanes team is a very classy team. From
the way they ran onto the court each game during player introductions (no jumps, no chest
bumps, no pat downs) just a simple forearm bump, to being respectful to other teams during
30 point blowouts these Canes handled themselves with class. No arguing with referees, no
pushing and shoving opponents, no show-boating. The credit for a team of young men playing
hard and being respectful goes to them and their coaching staff. A great quote by Red
Hurricanes' Coach Ralph Blundo in the Post-Gazette game story after the Canes first loss
and ouster from the state playoffs shows why this team exemplified character.
"This is not a sad day for New Castle," Blundo
said. "It's unfortunate, but they brought this community on a tremendous run. We
spent the entire year teaching them how to handle success, and they had a ton of it. Now,
we'll have to spend some time teaching them how to handle disappointment."
