  Monmouth University Men's Basketball 2006-7
   The 2006 NEC Defending Champion's season came to end Monday night, Feb. 26th with a loss
   to St. Francis, PA resulting in the Hawk's failing to qualify for the NEC Tourn.  But when the
   the five seniors clean out their lockers for the last time, they should hold their heads high as they
   leave Boylan Gym with the knowledge of the glory and recognition they brought to the program
   during their tenure:  2 NEC Titles, 2 Trips to the NCAA Tourn., and the programs 1st NCAA Tourn.
   win.  Even though this year's team fell short of it's goals, there's been a lesson that should not be
   over looked in the form of Senior Marques Alston of Neptune.  Marques has been a role model of
   strength, consistency, and hard work ever since he stepped on the court 4 years ago and remained
   so even in the face of the tragic loss of his father at the beginning of this season.  He handled the
   situation with the maturity and quiet dignity of someone far beyond his years both on and off the
   court. His teammates who step on the court in the fall of 2007 should remember the standard
   he set and draw inspiration from it.  Marques we're going to miss you.  And thanks for reminding
   us that you can make a big impression without a lot of fanfare and actions still speak louder than words.
