March Madness Again? 2005 Season Looks Very Promising for Falcon Basketball

down the nets again in Brougham Pavilion. Both the Seattle Pacific University men’s and women’s basketball teams are touted as contenders for GNAC championships and NCAA tournament berths.

Center Brittney Kroon, the nation’s top shot-blocker, and all-conference point guard Amy Taylor are among the returnees to a women’s squad that has not lost a regular season game in the past two years, and is the unanimous favorite in the GNAC.

Meanwhile, the Falcon men could also experience March Madness again. They are predicted to finish second to defending co-champion Alaska Fairbanks, which has been rated as high as No. 2 in national preseason polls. SPU all-region center Jason Chivers headlines a cast of five returning starters.

A difficult early-season schedule for the men began at the University of Washington on November 19, and they host Seattle University to commence GNAC play on December 2. Among the women’s featured home games is a December 30 rematch of last year’s West Regional Championship game against Cal Poly Pomona.
