Now, it is time for sports again and I found out that one term in sport is having a spike in the internet. It is CBS sportsline. Actually, when I take a lot at the search result, I notices that sometimes it does not reflect the main idea of the word (CBS sportsline) but it seem like it is more fall to Basketball. Is it because CBS sportsline are providing the best information about Basketball, especially in 2011 NCAA tournament? I do not know for sure. I just know that many people is searching for CBS sportsline today.
Anyway, below are the top articles that can found about CBS sportsline. I hope it serves your purpose.
They waited with a cool sense of confidence and great anticipation inside McIntyre Hall during one of Division I basketball’s rights of passage: Selection Sunday.
The St. Peter’s College Men’s basketball team didn’t have to worry about whether they would get into the NCAA tournament; they had clinched an at-large bid last Monday night when they defeated Iona 62-57 to win their first MAAC Championship since 1995, yet the excitement about whom they would play in the first round of the tournament was palpable from the head coach, John Dunne, all they way down the roster.
“This is awesome,” remarked Dunne before the announcement was made. “To watch these guys grow up and mature makes this that much more special.”
Around 6:19 p.m. the announcement was made on CBS television that St. Peter’s would travel to Chicago to play Purdue University on Friday in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Time of the tipoff is still to be announced according to CBSsportsline.com.
This is St. Peter’s third trip all time to the tournament, and first since 1995 when they lost in the first round to UMass. This is St. Peter’s first ever matchup against Purdue.
“I think they should worry about matching up against us,” said senior guard Nick Leon. “It’s all about confidence.”
Earlier Leon added that the Peacocks looked to other mid major schools like Butler, George Mason, and Vermont, who had a lot of success running the table in the NCAA tournament in years past.
“We’re the new Butler,” Leon said. “We’re happy to be here, but the job isn’t done. It’s a basketball game, so anything can happen.”
Brandon Hall, who was the first player that entered McIntyre Hall in anticipation of what lay ahead added. “It really puts St. Peter’s back on the map, and we are going to get some national exposure.”
It didn’t take long for McIntyre Hall to fill up.
By 5:30 p.m. the room was filled with the entire basketball team, the cheerleaders squad, as well as parents and alumni. A light dinner of hamburgers and hot dogs were also served, and the players were seen eating and relaxing before taking their seats in front of a large screen with the CBS sportsline broadcast of the Selection Show projected onto it.
“We’re just excited. We don’t care who we play; we are going to accept it and get ready to go,” Hall said.
The players sat in front of the screen on their edge of their seats aware of the rumors that they were projected to place anywhere between a 13th or 15th seed, and that they could draw either the University of Connecticut or the University of Florida.
When UCONN’s spot came up, the Peacocks started cheering and nudging themselves to the brink of anticipation, preparing to jump into the air. When CBS’ Greg Gumble said, “UCONN will play Bucknell,” the players gave out a collective groan.
“I was really nervous. Everyone said UCONN, and I expected us to get the call,” said Jeron Belin.
Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Louisville and San Diego State all got their opponents who were other mid-major schools, causing the Peacocks to either gasp in relief that they weren’t playing Duke, or throwing their hands into the air in frustration that they didn’t get San Diego State.
Then the announcement came.
As the St. Peter’s College graphic appeared underneath the Purdue Boilermakers graphic, the entire team jumped out of their seats, cheering loudly and hugging each other.
Facing Purdue will be a whole new experience for Coach Dunne who admitted that he is not well versed on the Big Ten team that went 25-7 and was second in the Big Ten during the regular season.
“We know nothing about Purdue, but I am looking forward to getting started,” Dunne said. “I spent a year in the Big Ten at Western Michigan and we played Purdue. All I can say is they are tough and physical. Still, I think this is a good match-up for us.”
