While their bench celebrations have certainly gotten them their attention, the Monmouth Hawks talent on the court is what is getting overlooked.
They’ll host their 2nd round NIT matchup as they get set to take on George Washington on Monday.
George Washington Colonials
George Washington grabbed a 4 seed here in the NIT, but this team has certainly had some solid moments this year.
They raced out to a 13-2 start and one of those wins came against a #1 seed in the NCAA tourney, Virginia. However, some late struggles down the stretch of the season, combined with an early exit in the CAA tourney was just too much to overcome for them.
The Colonials had a battle in their opening round of the NIT tourney as they trailed Hofstra late, before a pair of free throws by Alex Mitola secured their fate.
Still, the key here will be Tyler Cavanaugh. Cavanaugh has led this team on many occasions and is also the leader in points per game as he averages 16.5 points.
From their bench celebrations, to their high flying offensive attack, Monmouth has a legit argument for why they should be a tourney team.
However, after falling to Iona in the conference championship, the Hawks bubble was bursted during the selection show, leaving them NIT bound.
The Hawks used a giant 2nd half behind Justin Robinson to propel themselves here. Robinson finished with 23 points and his 2nd half contributions led to the Hawks pulling away for a 10 point win.
Robinson has been the team leader all season long, averaging 19 points per game and he has hit 80 3 pointers on the season.
