ECU WINS NATIONAL
CHAMPIONSHIP IN BASKETBALL!
by Troy Dreyfus
At what point are we going to stop with this loser’s mentality with our
program… I’m sick and tired of some fans saying we can’t do this or we
can’t do that. If our goal is not to win the national
championship in basketball, then maybe we should revaluate the whole
program. I know that is the goal for baseball, and football, but
what about basketball? Enough with the excuses. Everybody
has to travel, everybody has to compete in recruiting, and maybe other
programs are ahead of us, but we still have a lot to sell new
recruits. This is a great place, and a big time player can come
here and be a rock star versus sitting on the bench for a year at other
If we are ever going to change the perception of ECU basketball, we
need to change the perception of the ECU fans that don’t believe in
what the future could hold. Terry Holland believes that and so do
I! Sure we have not had a great history in basketball, but that’s
history, not tomorrow! Great programs are built over time by hard
work and support… let’s start building ours today. We need to
stop letting the lack of history in our basketball program hold us back
and build towards the future.
At some point the decision has to be made to build be a winning
program, and not settle for the status quo. The administration
has to believe it, the coaches have to believe it, the players have to
believe it, and our fans have to believe it can happen too!!
Let’s set our goal to be a top 25 team, go to the Final 4 and one day
win a national championship! You’re either a part of the solution or
part of the problem… where do you stand??
