Talk about a Bracket buster!

#1 Purdue just lost to #16 FDCU

That was an excellent game.

The Cinderellas play today
13 Furman- 5 San Diego St… 12:10PM
15 Princeton - 7 Missouri 6:10PM
16 FDU - 9 Florida Atlantic Tomorrow 7:45 PM

Did anyone have to look up these Cinderella schools?
I knew Furman… been there… just up I 85 in Greenville SC
Several Kids from my kids HS class went to Furman.

But FDU… probably a Florida school… wrong New Jersey!!!
Does Fudrucker’s have an NCAA team? :grinning:

and Florida Atlantic - Boca Raton FL

I don’t follow b ball but I had never heard of FDU. Looks like an abbreviation for profanity.
