The NCAA tournament had a number of exciting contests on Thursday.
Harvard upset Cincinnati; North Dakota State stunned Oklahoma; Dayton took out Ohio State.
Florida was tested by Albany. It was 39-39 when Patric Young had a three-point play to spark the Gators. Connecticut rallied to beat St. Joseph’s. Saint Louis came back from 16 down as NC State could not seal the deal.
Unsung heroes came through too. Just look at Lawrence Alexander, North Dakota State; Elgin Cook, Oregon and Vee Samford, Dayton. Alexander, who averaged just under 11 ppg during the season, had 28 vs. Oklahoma. Cook, who averaged 6.3 during the season, had 23 vs. Oregon in a way over BYU. Samford hit the winning shot for Dayton.
It was an exciting day of hoops, baby!
