Men's Basketball Reappears In ESPN's Bracketology

HAMDEN, Conn. - The Quinnipiac University men's basketball team reappears in ESPN.com and Joe Lunardi's latest version of "Bracketology" as the Northeast Conference's representative in the NCAA Tournament. Lunardi lists the Bobcats as a No. 16 seed, playing against No. 1 seed Duke in Jacksonville, Fla., as part of the West Region.

The Bobcats, currently ranked as the top team in the Northeast Conference in the NCAA's RPI and ESPN's InsideRPI, won a share of their first-ever NEC Regular Season Championship with a 74-65 road victory at Fairleigh Dickinson on Saturday. With the championship comes home court as long as the Bobcats advance in the NEC Tournament, as well as a National Invitation Tournament berth, should Quinnipiac get upset in the league tourney.
