San Diego pulls off the biggest upset so farPosted by nvr1983 on March 21st, 2008
In the second great finish of the day San Diego pulled off the big upset of UConn. De’Jon Jackson hit a fallaway jumper to give San Diego the lead with 1.2 secs left and the Toreros managed to hang on giving Jim Calhoun his first 1st round loss ever. Although some analysts warned us about UConn going down early, this still has to be a massive surprise to most people. We wonder if this will affect Calhoun’s memory of the St. Pete Times Forum where he won the national title in 1999.
Congrats to San Diego. Going into the tournament who would have thought they would be the only West Coast Conference team to make it to the weekend.
