A skeptical laugh broke the silence in a press conference on Wednesday, challenging newly hired men’s basketball coach David McLaughlin’s hopes of having his new staff hired in just two short weeks. But McLaughlin, standing tall and calm at the front of the room, did not miss a beat, expounding upon his plan to turn the men’s basketball team into a competitive Ivy League program.

A week ago today was Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts, a commemoration of the Battles of Lexington and Concord and also the annual running of the Boston Marathon. Two years ago, the holiday was marred by a tragic bombing. Five days later, the Boston Red Sox played their first game at Fenway Park after the bombings, trading in their traditional home jerseys with “Red Sox” across the front for ones with “Boston.”

It is not typical for a freshman to come in and play a major role in a team’s success, but that’s exactly what John Lazor ’19 has been doing since he stepped on campus in the fall. In the spring, he surpassed a strong fall season that saw him create a young 1-2 punch with teammate Ian Kelsey ’18.
