ESPN – Fourth-seeded Mount St. Mary’s used a bunch of 3-pointers to knock off top-ranked Robert Morris 88-71 on Tuesday night and advance to the NCAA tournament. “You saw a team really connected, and really doing whatever they could to win a championship,” said Christian, the Mountaineers’ second-year coach. Five Mount St. Mary’s players scored in double figures, led by guard Rashad Whack with 20 points, to give the Mountaineers their first NCAA tournament berth since 2008 and fourth in school history. Julian Norfleet (17), Taylor Danaher (15), Sam Prescott (15) and Will Miller (11) also finished in double figures for the Mountaineers, whose four NEC championship game victories all came on the road. But after several busloads of fans made the four-hour trip from Emmitsburg, Md., to suburban Pittsburgh, the Mountaineers often felt at home, especially after the final buzzer when dozens of fans ran down from the bleachers and danced at mid court to celebrate.
If a local team punches their ticket to March Madness, they get a shout out. Simple as that. Congrats to the Mountaineers for going dancing. I’m holding out hope they don’t have to play one of those bullshit play-in games. But equally as important, we need Mount St. Mary’s smokes! You get in the tourney, you need to be represented in Smokeshow Madness.
