JEMAIL: Report on Brother George

Phil & John,

Brother George Berrian a former Principal of Manhattan Prep suffered an apparent stroke this week and needs our prayers.
I received following update this morning from Joe Dasaro (Prep ’56, MC ’60):
spent a few hours sitting with him yesterday. He appears to be in a coma so I don’t know if he could hear me. He has no physical paralysis. The nurses and other brothers said they would take turns sitting with him through the night. Many Manhattan people have visited including Mrs Heckendorn’s daughter (remember her mother…the secretary in the  MP Director’s office). His brother from Long Island is planning on coming tomorrow.

Back at the ranch after a disappointing trip to the “First Four”. Argh! Sadly, I think the Jaspers were beaten when they were seeded — both as MAC champ to play in and as fodder for the KY #1 seed. My analysis of the game was that when Hampton ran off 7 quick ones, they were never able to catch up. Some really questionable calls went against them. And, my pet peeve, when they played good defense and we going to get a turnover — change of possession was imminent, two coach called timeouts and one player called time out, saved the turnover. Credit the H coach for calling timeout late in the second half, when two of the H players were losing their composure. Last spurt was just too little too late. Argh! “Once in a lifetime”. (Ticket was 62.50? AND 10 to park. Argh!)

FROM Sweeney, Peter K. (MC1964)

Argh Squared.

Agree that officiating was dreadful in that the Zebras allowed play to get much too physical. Hampton is not that good. Our seniors were flat out awful. If MC had played a game like that in any round of the MAAC tournament, we would have lost just as badly. I was on campus Sunday evening for the Selection party with the team. When CBS posted that we were in a play-in game for right to meet Kentucky, the air was sucked out of the room. I think it hurt our Coach as well since it seemed like selection committee set up a situation where his resume issue and subsequent belated graduation from Kentucky would become a front page story again this year.
