Tournament Tweet of the Day (Mar. 5)
@NellyNel14 – Someone get some oxygen, a towel and some water for Paul Dottino, stat! @necbbt #wagner #RMU

Nelly, one of the NEC’s top-tweeting fans, shared this Tweet during Sunday’s Wagner-Robert Morris broadcast on MSG and FCS. It received enough votes yesterday to make its way onto today’s ballot and eventually into the Winner’s Circle.  Anyway, if you weren’t watching, long-time NEC hoops play-by-play man, and New York Giants radio personality, Paul Dottino was working up while calling the Sunday’s first quarterfinal contest.  After all the action that went down in that one, can you blame him?
