George Mason University has WON their game against number 1 seeded University of Connecticut Huskies, in an Overtime Thriller at the Verizon Center. Tied at 74 after regulation, the Patriots charged through the Overtime period, beating Connecticut 86-84, becoming the first double-digit seed to ever make the Final Four.
The big story? Mason’s distance attack. Shooting 9 of 18 from outside the 3 point line, Mason was well over their usual 37%. The din from the Verizon Center is coming through loud and clear over the radio, and I would imagine Chinatown is bedecked with yellow and green fans running through the streets!
On to Indianapolis and the National Championship! Gooooooo MASON!
