Mount St. Mary's It Is

Mount St. Mary's, champions of the NEC, defeated Coppin State 69-60 in the Opening Round(Don't Call It a Play-In) Game. And as a reward for this fine effort MSM gets to travel to Raleigh and play the #1 overall seed in North Carolina. Incidentally UNC led off the 2005 NCAA Tournament playing the opening round winner Oakland despite the fact UNC was actually the #2 seed that season but due to some logistical issues UNC was given the opening round winner instead of Illinois.

And let me just say, the kid holding up the sign that said "BURY NORTH CAROLINA" must be in the 0.4% that has picked UNC to lose the game on Friday in the ESPN bracket contest.
