Tonight’s #NECMBB matchup on CBS Sports Network is one that may appropriately joggle the memories of fans on this #ThrowbackThursday.
Nearly eight full years ago in the same arena where tonight’s game will be played, the Northeast Conference crowned its men’s basketball tournament champion.
The date was March 12, 2008.
Mount St. Mary’s was searching for its first title in nearly a decade, while Sacred Heart was poised to secure its first ever NCAA Division I Tournament berth.
The Pitt Center was packed and the campus was noticeably buzzing, but the No. 4 seed Mountaineers went on to spoil the Pioneers’ party and started their own dance celebration.
The Mount saw four players score in double figures, while limiting Sacred Heart to a .291 clip from the field, including a 2-for-19 sample from downtown.
Mount St. Mary’s 68, Sacred Heart 55.
