Yale hopes for another upset as CT's lone NCAA Tournament representative
March Madness is here! Now it's time to fill out your bracket.
Connecticut has just one representative this year. It’s not UConn – they had a tough year, finishing 16-17.
It’s the Yale Bulldogs! They won the Ivy League title to grab an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Yale will be making just their fifth-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. They are a No. 14 seed.
History is on the Bulldogs’ side as an underdog. When they last appeared in the tournament, they upset No. 5 Baylor as a No. 12 seed.
This time around, they face No. 3 LSU.
Yale’s opponent has some adversity to deal with though, with head coach Will Wade suspended due to an alleged recruiting scandal.
Can the Bulldogs use LSU’s issues to their advantage?
Their opportunity comes Thursday at 12:40 p.m.
