I live two subway stops away from a tiny college with a D1 basketball team. Saint Francis College tonight  had a chance to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time ever. In fact, Saint Francis is one of five programs from the original NCAA that has never made the tournament. (Army, Northwestern, William&Mary, and The Citadel are the other four.)

But it wasn’t meant to be. Robert Morris will now have the “honor” of being slaughtered by some college powerhouse like Kentucky. Losses sting no matter when or where, but Robert Morris danced a few seasons ago. For St. Francis a 40-point blowout at the hands of Kentucky would have been wonderful.
