As a proud Monmouth University alum, I loved seeing this fantastic Hawks hustle play!

Monmouth was trailing college-basketball-powerhouse Kansas by fifty-five points with just seconds left to play in the game.

Kansas was dribbling the clock out…when Monmouth’s George Papas refused to quit!

He stole the ball and drove down the court for a mighty dunk!

While some have been critical of this play (calling it bad sportsmanship since the game was essentially over)…I feel it demonstrates a never-surrender attitude!

Oh…Kansas still won the game…110 to 57.

But…still………..FLY HAWKS, FLY!!
