Northern Colorado Wins Big Sky, Reaches NCAA Tournament For The First Time

For the first time ever, the Northern Colorado Bears are headed to March Madness. They defeated Montana last night in the Big Sky Men's Basketball Tournament final by a 65-60 score. The Bears were led by their star and conference MVP Devon Beitzel, who scored 27 points. 
"One of the greatest feelings I've ever felt in my entire life," said Beitzel, the league's regular season and tournament MVP. "It's unreal." 
Only a few years ago was Northern Colorado sitting at the bottom at the NCAA with a 4-24 record but however, this time they are going dancing.
Bracketology 101 projects them as a 15 seed.
