Cabrini Basketball Loses One of Its All-Time Greats
On Saturday December 16, 2006, the Cabrini Basketball Alumni family lost one of its own, Marty Clancy. Marty came to Cabrini as part of Coach Dzik's original recruiting class in 1980. He was a 6'5" All-Delco center from Collingdale H.S. (now part of Academy Park), and played 3 years at Cabrini, scoring 908 points and gathering 613 rebounds during his career (both good for a spot in the program's top 15 all-time Scoring/Rebound lists). Not only was Marty a great basketball player, he was a great person, and a friend to many Cabrini Basketball Alumni. Marty will be remembered, and will be missed.

Former Cavalier Standout, Jeff Dailey Victim of Deadly Fire in East Stroudsburg

Former Cabrini College Basketball Player Jeff Dailey was tragically killed as a result of a fire in his off-campus duplex in East Stroudsburg, PA on November 8, 2007.  Dailey played at Cabrini for 2 years following his record-setting high school career at Notre Dame High School in Easton, PA. While at Notre Dame, Dailey set his school's all time scoring record with 1,742 points, and was the Colonial League MVP and a PIAA Class 2A all-State selection as a senior. As  result of his stellar high school career, Notre Dame retired his jersey (#20) in 2004.  During his Cabrini career, Dailey was named 2004-05 Pennsylvania Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year, and was named All-Conference Honorable Mention in 2005-06.  Following the 2005-06 season, Dailey left Cabrini, and ended up enrolling at East Stroudsburg University this fall, planning to resume his playing career in the near future. Jeff was a great basketball player, but more importantly a great teammate and friend to many members of the Cabrini Alumni Basketball family.  Jeff will always be a Cavalier, and both him and his family will remain in our thoughts and prayers. 
Memorials: In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Jeff's memory to Notre Dame High School; or to the charity of one's choice.

2007 Alumni Game Wrap-Up

John Dzik made his triumphant return Saturday to the Nerney Field House in the Dixon Sports and Recreation Center on the beautiful campus of Cabrini College. Dozens of Dzik’s former players packed the house as the annual Alumni Basketball Game returned to Cabrini after a one year exile to visit our friends at Eastern College.

Coach Keeley’s squad was up big at halftime and survived a late run by Coach Kelly’s squad to hang on for the victory. Notes on the game are that no one had a heart attack, Johnny Drummond can still play and Kris Pittman can still handle. Tommy Newnam, though, needed oxygen after about 2 minutes.

Following the game, the current squad of Cavs, led by former Allentown player Matt Macciocca, continued their winless PAC campaign, falling to 1-14 on the year. On the bright side, they played furiously in the second half and lost by only one to Neumann 74-73.

Special thanks on putting the day together go to Coach John Mack, SID Extraordinaire Rich Schepis, “Schmoo” Steve Harrow and Cabrini’s Director of Basketball Operations and Former Dzik Player, Billy Leahy.

The afterparty at J.D. McGillicuddy’s in Ardmore with Cabrini soccer great Bill DiRita behind the bar was a wonderful chance to enjoy each other’s company. Nearly 200 turned out for what has become a great tradition of fellowship.

As noted on this website, one of our all-time greats, Marty Clancy, was unable to join us, as he passed away in December. I was with Coach Dzik in Georgia the day after he learned of Marty’s passing. I can tell you that there have not been many times I saw him as reflective and saddened as he was then. Marty was a great guy and would give you the shirt off his back. He will be missed.
