There was a major conference tournament shake up in New York yesterday when Villanova went down to Seton Hall. There was a major conference tournament shake up in Brooklyn when the 9 seed St Bonaventure Bonnies upset the top seed in the Atlantic Ten St Louis Billikens 71-68.
From SB Nation and Roger Sherman, here is the video from press row:
This is another loss for the Billikens. They have lost 4 of 5 to close the season. The only win was a 2 point win over UMass at the buzzer. St Louis has really damaged their NCAA stock. Duquesne was a very bad loss. This wasn't as bad, but the Bonnies are barely a top 100 team. Last year St Louis was a trendy pick. This year it's going to be hard to buy in because they are going to be in a tricky first round matchup and they are not playing well.
Losses happen but this seems like something bigger for the Billikens.
