It's Tourney Time

Well the brackets are set for the men's tournament in Richmond this Friday, March 7th. I was hoping we would roll into the tourney on a nice little won streak after the impressive win at Toledo and at home against Hofstra. But after getting dropped at Towson to end the regular season that just didn't happen. Regardless, I strongly feel that the Hens have a shot at making a run to the finals and facing VCU there. And who's to say that we can't catch a break and have someone upset VCU. That's the beauty of the conference tourneys. Anything can happen. Now it's time to start thinking about our old friends Drexel.

Here are the first round matchups:

Friday, March 7
Game 1: No. 8 Hofstra vs. No. 9 Towson (Noon)
Game 2: No. 5 William & Mary vs. No. 12 Georgia State(2:30 p.m.)
Game 3: No. 7 Delaware vs. No. 10 Drexel (6 p.m.)
Game 4: No. 6 Northeastern vs. No. 11 James Madison (8:30 p.m.)

This is really my favorite time of the year. Two weeks, 31 automatic bids up for grabs. It just doesn't get any better.

There is nothing i enjoy more than basketball heaven! March madness! I usually fill out my brackets for the sake of filling them out, however i never actually put my cash on it, do you?
Like you said: anything can happen, right?

Thank you for the breakdown of the First round matchups!
