    To put into perspective how much of an underdog FDU was, they lost basketball games to teams this year called "SIUE", "Longwood", "Hartford", "Queens", "Sacred Heart", "Stonehill", and "Central Connecticut". In fact, they didn't even win their conference. They only got invited to the tournament because the team that beat them in the conference final, called "Merrimack", was a D2 school so recently that their current conference contract didn't guarantee them an auto-bid if they win the conference until next year. And on top of all that, FDU already had to win a First Four game just to get to be a 16 seed against Purdue. To say "This is the biggest upset in tournament history" is an understatement. These young men (and their coaching staff) deserve all the credit in the world for somehow pulling this off.

    I had Furman and Princeton reach the second round, resulting in a flawless bracket until Fairleigh Dickinson ruined it. My sister currently attends Fairleigh Dickinson for sports. My sister can share the experience that I had when I attended North Texas as a student in 2021 when our team stunned Purdue.

    UVA losing didn't surprise me because I always knew all it took was an athletic team to speed them up and expose their lack of relative athleticism. This was shocking. FDU does not have a single advantage over Purdue. The Purdue guards played horrendously considering all the offensive boards Edey gave them.

    I saw FDU hanging with Purdue early and was thinking it could be like a Gardner Webb Virginia game. FDU has a nice little first half and it’s cool to be up at the half but then Purdue shows up and yeah. Then I saw the score with 10 minutes and Purdue still hadn’t pulled away. I decided to tune in with 3 minutes and wow

    Wow, just wow! Great job FDU! Played like a TEAM. And the blocks were epic!!!

    That's awesome how Sean Moore mentioned my school when asked when he knew they could do this. In the very first game of the season, FDU had a two point lead on my Ramblers. It took a last second shot by Sheldon Edwards to send the game to overtime. That's when I knew it was going to be a long season for my school's team. At the same time, I thought there was no way FDU should have had a KenPom ranking of over 300 like they had.
