It’s time for the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament to officially get underway with the First Four match ups, and it all starts on Tuesday night with a battle between two 16-seeds for the right to play the top-seeded Florida Gators on Thursday night as the Albany Great Danes take on the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers in South Region action.
Albany comes in as the champions of the America East Conference for 2014. After an average season in conference play this season, the Great Danes turned it on when it mattered most and fought their way to this NCAA Tournament berth. They cruised past Stony Brook in the final game and are now ready to see if they can be the Cinderella in 2014.
But, the Mountaineers are out for the same thing. After just a 9-7 season in the conference this past season, Mount St. Mary’s played their way to the Northeast Conference title by getting through Robert Morris in the finals and are primed and ready to see if they can get the chance at the Gators this weekend.
