The battle of the 16 seeds takes form as the Holy Cross Crusaders and Southern Jaguars meet in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
While no 16 seed has ever beaten a 1, one of these teams will have their chance at taking down Oregon out in the West Region.
Southern pulled off the upset of taking the SWAC title as they entered the conference tourney as a 4 seed with an 11-7 record.
Southern knocked off Alabama State, Texas Southern, and then Jackson State in the finals. The Jaguars defense really was the key factor in the tourney.
Southern held the opposition to 63, 73, and 53 points in their games and that was quite the shock as this team allowed 69.0 points per game on the season.
The Jaguars like to use their bench a lot, but really rely heavily on Adrian Rodgers. The guard has averaged 16.6 points per game and while he came up clutch with scoring in the quarters and semis, his rebounding made a huge difference in the final. Rodgers finished with just 7 points, but added 11 rebounds in the win.
Holy Cross Crusaders
There’s always one team that likes to crash a party.
That team this year is the Holy Cross Crusaders. Holy Cross entered the conference tournament with just a 5-13 record in the Patriot League while their overall record sat at 10-19.
It took 4 wins, but Holy Cross had no problem rattling off the wins with them capping it off against Lehigh on the road in a 59-56 victory. Nothing ever seemed easy for this team as Lehigh got 5 looks from behind the arc in the final sequence, missing them all to secure the title for Holy Cross.
Holy Cross doesn’t do too much flashy, thus their record, as they’ve averaged just 65.3 points per game. This team has the momentum going into this one though, which is something they haven’t had all season long.
