Basketball Fever Hits Central Coast, As Cal Poly Mens Team Makes Division One NCAA Basketball Tournament For First Time

Posted on Monday, March 17, 2014 12:48am

There’s basketball fever on the Central Coast this morning.

The Cal Poly Mustangs are in the NCAA Division One basketball tournament for the first time in the university’s history.

The team qualified after winning the Big West Basketball tournament over the weekend, with three upset wins in a row over UC Santa Barbara, UC Irvine, and Cal State Northridge.

With a 13-19 regular season record, Cal Poly was the lowest seeded mens team to win the tournament in its history.

Cal Poly will play Texas Southern on Wednesday in a nationally televised game which will be played in Dayton, Ohio.
