RPI WATCH: 3/8/2010

New, 5 comments

The Madness officially has begun!

Several conference tournaments already have been afflicted with "upset disorder" thus far, but none are crazier than that what happened in the America East Tournament on Sunday night.

No. 1 seed Stony Brook looked like it was poised to cruise through the tourney and secure an automatic bid, after blowing through the regular season with a 13-3 record.

But our old friends from Puerto Rico, the fourth-seeded Boston University Terriers, put a wrinkle in those plans with a 70-63 upset victory last night.

Now Boston U. is one win away from the Big Dance. Who knew?
