A GREAT night in the NAC!!!

Postby SeaDogsFan » Sat Feb 28, 2009 12:09 am

Men's Tourney hosts Thomas College watched their 15 point lead trimmed all the way down to 2 or 3 by Green Mountain College before pulling away and securing a 6-point win... while Husson University made it a 1-2 Final by downing rival UMaine-Farmington in the closing seconds, winning 67-65!

On the women's side, Husson cruised to a 79-60 victory over Green Mountain College, while in a game Steve Hannan and I had exclusively on WHSN (*fistpump*) - #3 Castleton State upset #2 UMF 61-59 in OHHHH-TEEEEE! Beavers were up 58-52 in the overtime, and then Jessica Banks, who hadn't scored since her 7-point first half performance, hit 5 clutch free throws (ended the night 5/5 on a night where CS struggled at the line, and UMF didn't) - to help drag her team back in it. Banks then blocked the final shot from Amanda Byrne which would've tied it at the buzzer.

Tomorrow afternoon, the Husson men are down at Thomas College playing... Thomas College. The Castleton State women are at Husson University at 2PM playing... Husson University. psst! that game's also on WHSN and this time I'll be paired with Adam Smith. Should be an amazing day of basketball all around the state :D

Husson University went on to win the NAC mens tournament and earned their first NCAA D3 Tournament bid! They beat Thomas College 70-63 in the NAC Finals. They go on to play down in Worcester friday night in the first round.

The Husson womens team fell to Castleton in their finals however.Castleton will play Bowdoin in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
