George Mason Beats UCONN to Advance to the Final Four

I love the NCAA basketball tournament because of moments exactly like this. George Mason, seeded #11 in the tournament upset #1 seeded UCONN to advance to the Final Four! What's even more impressive is they weren't supposed to even be in the tournament. The were chosen as a team at-large. The at-large bid was widely criticized by almost everyone. Here is an excerpt from a story on Yahoo! Sports:

"The Patriots' at-large selection was roundly criticized by many, including CBS commentator Billy Packer. George Mason's fans chanted Packer's name in the postgame celebration.

"I think it's been working for us, calling us Cinderella," Skinn said. "We were not supposed to get into the tournament, we got into it. We were not supposed to beat Michigan State and we beat them. Weren't supposed to beat North Carolina and we beat them. We definitely weren't supposed to be UConn. I think we'll stick to the script going into whoever we play. We don't mind being the Cinderella."

Good luck in the final four George Mason!

Make it a great day!
