FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Sacred Heart men's lacrosse head coach Jon Basti recently appeared on the GameChanger Lacrosse podcast late last week. In the hour-long episode, Coach Basti spoke with host Joe Yevoli about his journey to Sacred Heart, different aspects of the coaching profession and about establishing a successful team culture.
Basti led the Pioneers to their winningest seasons in the program's Division I history (since 2000) in 2017 when SHU went 9-6 overall and followed that up with a seven-win campaign in 2018, earning a bid into the NEC Tournament for the second consecutive season. Basti has led SHU to 15 wins over the last two seasons (2017-18) which stands as the highest two-season combined win total for SHU at the Division I level.
Off to a 1-3 start in 2019, the Pioneers travel to Providence on Saturday for a 1 PM start against the Friars.
