Dan Gardella and I had the chance to catch up with Anthony Latina, who’s been the head coach of the Sacred Heart Pioneers for 9 seasons.
It’s challenging times for the Pioneers, having gone on a pause due to COVID-19 concerns. They’ve got a statement win over LIU and a tough three-point loss against the Bryant Bulldogs to start off Northeast Conference play.
We discuss Sacred Heart’s start to the year, some learnings from buzzer-beater losses early in the year, and some key players emerging in Joey Reilly and Nico Galette. We also discuss what the Pioneers need to do to be a contending team in the NEC playoffs this year, and Latina’s approach to leading with gratitude during turbulent times.
