Well, since we are approaching March 1st, it's getting to be around the time of the NCAA March Madness Tournament, which a 64-team College Basketball Tourney. So, I decided to replay last year's Tournament on Whatifsports.com. Here is the first round of the tournament, including the "play-in" between Florida A&M, and Niagara, plus the boxscores.
Play-in (March 13th, 2007):
Niagara over Florida A&M 85-83
The 22-11 Niagara Purple Eagles took the final spot in the 2007 NCAA March Madness tournament with a 2-point win over the Florida A&M Rattlers, despite being down by 5 at the half. Power Forward, Brian Greene, scored 17, and grabbed 12 boards for the double-double for A&M, but Charron Fisher's 22 points, and 5 rebounds was too much for the Rattlers. A&M goes home, while the Purple Eagles move onto a first round matchup against number 1 Kansas. This is where the fun begins. http://whatifsports.com/ncaab/boxscore.asp?GameID=109495&nomenu=1
