Congratulations, AU Men's Basketball

So far, so good, on the early post-mortems on the AU men's basketball team's loss tonight to Big East powerhouse Villanova in the opening game of this year's NCAA tournament. AU was up by fourteen points at the half before Villanova kicked into high-gear in the second half, ultimately winning 80-67. Just like last year when AU opened against Tennessee, the Eagles came out determined to show everyone there still looking to find our university on their AAA Trip Tix that they were for real. And they certainly were.

No need to hang for the AU men to hang their heads over this one. Winning the Patriot League title is now becoming a habit, and a good one. Congratulations to Garrison Carr, Derrick Mercer, Brian Gilmore and everyone else for leading the team to an outstanding season. You all have done much to pave the way for more good things to come.
