Holy Cow Mason is Going to the Final Four
George Mason University from Fairfax, Virginia won.
Leading UConn with less than one minute to play in overtime, 84-82, the final score was 86-84.
At one point in the game, Mason trailed by as many as 12 points.
The Associated Press via Washington Post reports that only one other 11th seeded team has ever reached the Final Four. The other team was Louisiana State University in 1986; and no, Shaquille O'Neal wasn't even on the team; he didn't arrive until 1989.
During the Madness the Patriots beat the last two national champions Connecticut and North Carolina.
ok, a sure sign the world is coming to an end...but really, this is super, as a VCU alum, I couldn't be more proud of GMU.Post a Comment
