NFT: FDU Upsets Purdue 16 over 1

16th seed upsets no.1 Purdue.

Very competitive game to the end. Congrats to FDU.

Didn't the Giants use to practice their many years ago in the summer?

first Giants training camps were at FDU.
Yep, I think before

they went to Albany they were at FDU.

Huge upset. Top seeds getting knocked out is pretty cool.

My bad... I went to camp at Pace before they went to FDU.
it's crazy Princeton and FDU are the two jersey teams

winning in this tourney. Fun to watch.
Never thought in my lifetime

I would see my FDU Knights win an NCAA tourney game let alone as a 16 seed beating a 1 seed! Smallest team in the tournament. Talk about a Cinderella story!

Great game

Second year in a row a small school team from Jersey shocks the world
FDU - alumni - Madison 93-97  
Drewcon40 : 3/17/2023 10:57 pm : link
Giants held training camps there my first two years (I believe). Our school built a new gym in 95 and I think the Giants wanted exclusive access which the school wouldn’t grant.

Congrats to the Teaneck boys!
Why that’s Fairly Ridiculous!

Different location. Giants trained at FDU Florham in Madison, a D3 school. This is FDU mTro Campus in Teaneck/Hackensack, a DI NEC school.
Party at Coach House!

Teaneck-Hackensack. Still cannot believe it. Many on ESPN including Lunardi calling it the greatest upset in Tournament History. First team that was a "First Four" team that beat a #1 seed. They did not win their regular season conference title, lost by 1 point in their Conference tournament to Merrimac and the only reason they got to play in the First Four is Merrimac is transitioning to Division 1 athletics. Incredible.
FDU has my deepest gratitude

I do feel bad for Purdue - Matt Painter is a class guy all the way and they have been totally snake bitten in recent years with some very good teams. Their fans were very gracious after our E8 game in 2019, unlike the bitches from Auburn. I’m glad we are no longer alone in ignominy, but I’m sorry it was Purdue that joined us.

They didn't even win their conference championship

Merrimack won transitioning from Div 2 and not eligible to play.
They played their hearts out and deserved to win

Purdue was so perplexed no one wanted to take a shot.
Their 7' 4" center was slow as molasses and the little guys abused him
what a great game.
As a Monmouth alum Congrats to FDU
Purdue was by far the easiest 1 seed to see being picked off

Starting an all freshman backcourt is death in the tournament. This is not the 1 and done era any more. It's the portal transfer era where you have senior ladwn teams like the old days. Great job by FDU though.
Congrats to all the FDU peeps,

what a great moment. Great game, great effort by the Knights, and Tobin Anderson completely outcoached Painter.
All three schools from the state of Arizona....

Congrats to FDU. I hope they win a couple more.
