#NortheastMadness Elite 8 Update

It was UPSET CITY on the first two days of #NortheastMadness (presented by Nexxt) voting.

Two No. 1 seeds were toppled.

First, in the Kevin Massa Region, Central Connecticut WSOC (2003) stunned No. 1 seed Bryant MLAX (2014). Up against the Bryant men’s lacrosse team that upended No. 2 Syracuse in the 2014 NCAA Tournament, the 2003 Blue Devils, who defeated Boston College for the program’s first-ever College Cup victory, pulled in nearly 56 percent of the vote.

One day later, the CCSU tweeters did it again in the Velton Jones Region. Central Connecticut BSB (2019), with a little help from the state of Arkansas, crushed No. 1 seed Robert Morris MBB (2013) by garnering more than 90 percent of the vote. Both lower-seeded teams won in this region with Sacred Heart BOWL (2019) overtaking UMBC’s Cleopatra Borel (2002).

Normalcy returned in the Danielle McEwan Region with No. 1 Fairleigh Dickinson BOWL (2010) easing past Robert Morris MBB (2014) and its NIT victory over St. John’s.

No. 4 seed Wagner FB (2012) was no match for No. 1 Fairleigh Dickinson MSOC (2001) in the first round of the Aaron Paye Region.
