Overtime! Tournament Tweet of the Day
#NEC13 WBB Championship Sunday (March 17)

They have been dreaming about an opportunity to storm the court at Quinnipiac for quite some time. The men’s hoops team nearly rewarded the Bobcats’ Faithful in 2010, but Dallas Green’s big block allowed Robert Morris to escape Hamden with a 52-50 victory in the NEC Championship Game. So fast forward to March 17, 2013 with Quinnipiac, a NEC member since 1998, still in search of its first NEC Tournament title (men’s or women’s). This time, Tricia Fabbri’s Bobcats had the prime opportunity to send their home crowd into a frenzy while sending the program to the NCAA Division I Big Dance for the first time ever. They didn’t disappoint. Quinnipiac defeated Saint Francis U by a NEC Tournament record margin (72-33), and the #BobcatMadness ensued.
