Crusaders are champs again!

The top-seeded Alvernia Crusaders (18-6) beat #2 Lebanon Valley in the Commonwealth Conference Men's Basketball Championship Saturday afternoon at the Physical Education Center, by a score of 57-55.

Alvernia is back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2007 by virtue of the automatic bid for the Commonwealth Conference. On Monday, the NCAA annouced the tournament field, including Alvernia's match-up with Randolf-Macon. The Crusaders made back-to-back appearances in '06 and '07 after winning the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference Championship both years. This was the first Commonwealth title in their first playoff appearance.

The Dutchmen will await a possible at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament.
