Three seasons ago, Sam Light may the decision to transfer from Millersville University to Lebanon Valley College, to play in front of the home folks and win a championship. And although the latter has yet to happen, he can’t be displeased with his decision.
Light is looking at his senior year as his last chance to make that championship happen.
On Tuesday night at Lou Sorrentino Gymnasium, Light and the Flying Dutchmen’s pursuit of that elusive title continued, with an 82-72 non-conference triumph over Elizabethtown. Though Lebanon Valley’s championship drive is still in its infancy, the outcome made it an impressive 4-0 this season.
As has become his custom, Light led the Flying Dutchmen in a number of ways. On nine-of-12 shooting from the field, the 6-0 guard out of Northern Lebanon poured in a game-high 22 points in 30 minutes of action, and also contributed seven rebounds, three assists and a steal.
For the season, Light is averaging right around 20 points per outing and is shooting .460 from the floor. He is also a blistering 30-for-31 from the charity stripe.
Light also leads the Flying Dutchmen in three-pointers.
