He holds no documents, deeds or titles to prove possession or ownership. But make no mistake about it, the Lebanon Valley College men’s basketball squad is Kevin Agnew’s team.
Agnew’s senior season is off to a great start, and not so coincidentally, so is the Flying Dutchmen’s.
On Saturday in Grantville, Agnew was up to his old point-guard tricks again, during LVC’s 83-80 road triumph at Messiah. Agnew played all 40 minutes, dropped in a game-high 24 points on seven-for-16 shooting and nine-of-ten free throwing and handed out five assists.
The triumph lifted Agnew’s Flying Dutchmen to 4-2 overall and 1-0 in the Commonwealth Conference. Earlier in the week, Agnew had tallied 29 points, knocked down eight-of-ten foul shots and dished out four assists, without the benefit of a bench break, in a 78-71 setback at Delaware Valley.
Through six games this year, the Lebanon Valley captain has averaged 22.8 points an outing and also leads the team in assists. But what Agnew brings to the table for the Flying Dutchmen can not be documented in any scorebook.
