Over this past summer, Saint Vincent underwent campus-wide renovations by the Facility Management Office, while the Information Technology department upgraded technology for student use. A basketball court was also constructed near Saint Benedict Hall. Several sets of steps were removed and replaced around campus. FMO replaced six sets in front of Rooney Hall and two sets behind it, one set leading up to parking lot Q and another set outside of Bonaventure Hall.

On February 5, the Saint Vincent College Bearcats took on the Thiel College Tomcats at Thiel in what became easily one of the most exciting basketball games of the season, and one of the longest-lasting games in Presidents’ Athletic Conference history. Although after four overtime periods the Bearcats ultimately fell to the Tomcats with a score of 124-121, the second-highest score in PAC history, the game was record-breaking. Senior forward Dillon Stith broke three records during the game. He surpassed the school record for the most points scored in a single game with 50 points, breaking the record held by 2005 All-American Tony Washam of 47 points. Stith is now one of three men’s basketball players in PAC history to reach 50 points in a single game, tying Wayne State’s George Duncan’s score from his record 1960 game. He also set the record for the most free throws in aRead More
