Mount St. Mary’s upsets Sacred Heart

Moments ago on ESPN2, #4-seed Mount St. Mary’s defeated #3-seed Sacred Heart, 68-55, on SHU’s home floor in Fairfield, Connecticut, to earn the Northeast Conference title. So that leaves just Hartford and UConn still alive from the Nutmeg State. (Hartford plays for the America East title on Saturday morning. UConn plays West Virginia in the Big East quarters tomorrow, but is, of course, going dancing regardless.)

The NCAA bid for the Mountaineers is their first since 1999. Between Mount St. Mary’s from the NEC, St. Mary’s from the WCC, and Notre Dame from the Big East, the Blessed Virgin will be very well-represented in this year’s NCAA Tournament. :)

    Go Mount! I just realized that when I go home to my parents, I pass Mount Saint Mary’s. This puts a Maryland team in, which was turning into a dicey proposition. Awesome!

    Mount St. Mary’s definitely has my rooting interests! I’ll have to go to a game next year.

    The Mount might as well be in PA. Their party’s suck so many balls that they have to go to Gettysburg.
