Richmond holds quite an impressive record in the NCAA Tournament, and truth be said, they just made this one better as the Spiders were able to pull-off a last second shot to take a 66-69 win. This was the second upset of the day as Morehead State was capable of stunning Louisville, but contrary to that other game, Richmond knew they had a chance all along.
Heck, even the US President, Barack Obama, saw it coming. He missed out on Louisville, though. Obama had Louisville reaching the regional semifinals when he filled in the presidential bracket just a couple of days ago. But he sure enough hit a good pick when he went for 12th seeded Richmond to win over the 5th seeded Vanderbilt.
President Barack Obama lost another valuable pick with Michigan State, which fell to UCLA later on that night. But let’s get back to the Richmond Spiders game against the Vanderbilt Commodores.
Ok, it is not that Richmond is one of the big teams in College Basketball. We are very far away from making that statement. On the other hand Richmond beat an Auburn team led by Charles Barkley during the 1984 NCAA tournament and defeated the second-seeded Syracuse Orange in 1991. So yes, this is not the first time they’ve done something like this. But its sure has been the first time in quite a while.
To be more precise this is actually the Richmond Spiders’ first NCAA tournament win since they knocked out South Carolina in 1998 as a No. 14 seed.
Looking for the man of the hour, well look no further, it was Kevin Anderson. He guided the spiders scoring 16 of his 25 points in the second half, including a beautiful floater with 18.7 seconds remaining that helped seal the game for Richmond.
The No. 12 seed, the Richmond Spider will now play the 13th seed, the Morehead State tomorrow, to earn a ticket to the Sweet 16 dance. Stick around for more coverage on all the madness of the NCAA Tournament.
