LIU-Brooklyn wins the Northeast Conference Tourney, going to March Madness 2012

In the Northeast Conference Tournament Final tonight on the campus of Long Island University Brooklyn, it was the home Blackbirds that won a repeat NEC championship by defeating the Robert Morris Colonials, 88-73, and thus win the auto-bid to the 2012 NCAA Tournament. The Blackbirds led for much of the game and took the lead for good midway in the first half. They were led in scoring by junior guard C.J. Garner with 21.

The Blackbirds will find out who they are taking on in the Big Dance on Selection Sunday in four days.
