Just three games into his Longwood University men’s basketball tenure, first-year Head Coach Griff Aldrich has already made history. Extending what has emerged as a historic start for the program, the Lancers outlasted University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) 66-63 Tuesday night to improve to 3-0 for the first time in Longwood’s 15-year Division I era and surge to the top of the Big South standings as the conference’s first 3-0 team. Four nights after shocking Atlantic 10 member and commonwealth rival University of Richmond 63-58 on Nov. 9 on the road, Longwood pulled out another nail-biter of a win at UMES (0-3), riding a third straight 20-point game from redshirt senior guard Isaiah Walton, pictured above.
