UNC-Asheville wins the Big South Tournament, headed to the 2012 NCAA Tournament

We have our first team in the 2012 NCAA Tournament and it is the Bulldogs from UNC Asheville as they captured the Big South Tournament Championship for the second year in a row today by defeating the Keydets from VMI, 80-64 at Kimmel Arena in Asheville, N.C. This is their third appearance in March Madness, having first gone to the dance in 2003. Asheville was heavily favored over the underdog Keydets, who were the seven seed in the Big South Tournament. The Bulldogs were led in scoring by junior forward Jeremy Atkinson with 18 points with 16 points coming from senior guard J.P. Primm and 15 from senior guard Matt Dickey.

The Bulldogs will find out where they are headed on Selection Sunday in eight days.
