Oral Roberts doing way better than we did vs OSU, 15-2 seed, 2 point game with a minute and some change left...

Hartford v. Baylor is closer to the CCSU v. Ohio State experience, not the Iowa State game.

#16 seeds are just brutal. Going against Oden and OSU in 2007 was just so unfortunate. Impossible matchup.

Good for Oral Roberts hanging in there. #15 seed line is a world of difference than the #16

Man if they just made free throws at the end, thought that last one was going down. Love the 15-2 knock outs

Sure is. Wasn’t CCSU a 14 seed when they played Iowa State? That was a game they could have won if they didn’t come out so nervous in the beginning.

Actually, we were the #15 that year. CCSU erased a 19-point first half deficit to tie the game at 69 with 6:15 left. ISU went on a 12-0 run and put the game away. https://www.espn.com/ncb/2000/20000316/ ... aoiao.html

We were a #14 seed in 2002, but Pitt basically got a "home" game. Again, CCSU got behind early (by 13 points), but made it a 1 possession game (43-40) with 9:34 remaining. https://www.espn.com/mens-college-baske ... =224000055

2000 - #15 vs. #2 Iowa State (L, 77-88)
2002 - #14 vs. #3 Pittsburgh (L, 54-71)
2007 - #16 vs. #1 Ohio State (L, 57-78)

You are correct. I remember that God awful drive to Pitt.

General aviation just got back into full swing after the 9/11 shutdown and I didn’t feel comfortable flying out there since GA was still being scrutinized. Otherwise, it would have been a no brainer.

It was an exciting early second half but they couldn’t pull it out. A Pitt fan in back of me was very impressed.

Nice win for Ohio over Virginia. A #13 seed upset.

Also, nice to see Dan Hurley and the Huskies make a very early exit. 👍
