Williams MBB in NESCAC Final

The Williams Men’s Basketball Team is in the NESCAC finals today (gametime: 2:30pm EST) against Wesleyan.  Williams and Wesleyan split their two previous games this season with both, I think, going into overtime.  It’s likely that both teams will get a bid to the NCAA tournament regardless of today’s result (and will likely get high seeds), but it’s likely that Williams/Wesleyan are playing for home court advantage through later rounds of the tourney — so there are real stakes here.

EDIT: early in the second half, Williams is up 35-27.

And the NCAA bracket is out!: https://www.ncaa.com/interactive-bracket/basketball-men/d3.

Assuming Williams wins, it will likely host up until Salem (the final four). Interesting fact of note: Amherst misses the NCAA tourney for the first time since, I think, 2010. My bet is that they were one of the first teams out.
