Not every day you see a team record its largest margin of victory over a Division I team.
I’m pretty sure that’s what went down tonight at Verizon Center.
And it sent me rushing to the record book to find out just where this ranks among the school’s all-time blowouts.
|1986||St. Leo||126-51 ||+75|
|2008||Savannah State ||100-38||+62|
|1984||at Hawaii-Hilo ||97-35||+62|
Savannah State coach Horace Broadnax acknowledged after the game the Tigers are a Division I program in name.
But since I’m pretty sure none of those programs were D-1 when they demolished by the Hoyas, that means tonight’s rout is a record-breaker just like that St. Leo game was 22 years ago.
