March Sadness; The Finals are a Go

The third round of March Sadness is complete, which still nobody cares about. It would be cool though if this tournament actually happened, but then again it would seen as a mockery. Also I just figured out I was calling the Stetson Hatters, the Stenson Hatters until now. How in the world did I continue that mistake for several posts, the name literally stares me in the face. SMH! Anyways, enjoy!

The top seeded Stetson Hatters destroyed the 12th seeded Mississippi Valley St. Delta Devils cinderella run. The Hatters built a 9 point lead at half time, only to build it to 24 by game’s end. The Hatters connected on 7 three pointers and shot a very solid 53.7% from the field. The Hatters had four double digit scorers, with Kentwan Smith leading the charge with 17 points. Brand Peel who also scored double digits, added 10 rebounds to make it a double double. The Hatters look to lay claim to becoming the first March Sadness championship against…

In a much closer game than the first, the UT-Pan American Broncs edged out the 6th seeded Central Connecticut Blue Devils. The Broncs had three players in double figures, most notably Janari Joesaar’s game high of 22 points. The Broncs shot a mean 53% from the field and grabbed a game high of 9 steals. Which leads me to the Blue Devils, who were plagued by 15 turnovers and going 7-14 at the line. The Blue Devils Matt Mobley put up 16 points, while Brandon Peel added a double double (17 points, 13 rebounds). However, that wasn’t enough and the Broncs will be facing the Hatters to be crowned the first March Sadness winner.
