Fiat Leaders, On and Off the Court
The four seniors on our men’s basketball team this year are leaders on the court, and off. The four—Sage Brown, Dom LeMorta, Pat McLamore and Scotty Stopera—led our team to a first-ever Empire 8 championship, and on to the second round of the National Collegiate Athletic Association play-offs for Division III.
As a team and as individuals, they put up some pretty impressive statistics, and laid the groundwork for future successes. They are laying the groundwork for Alfred University’s future success as well, by joining the Saxon Circle, our leadership giving society.
Their Saxon Circle support is helping us to meet the dollar-for-dollar challenge match created by Terry S. Galanis, Sr., ’40 and trustee Neal Miller for our second annual Day of Giving (today) to benefit our Alfred Fund.
Join the team of leaders!

P.S. At the photo session yesterday, I took the opportunity to pass on some tips, from my own hoop-playing days, to our players on how best to palm a basketball. At the next gathering I promised to pass along some advice regarding improving their dunking skills (at least for those of them with the requisite height and/or leaping ability).
