March Madness hits Flagstaff and NAU like never before

March Madness NAU

While the men’s basketball team lost Tuesday night, the accomplishments of the team are great. They brought the Big Sky Tournament home by claiming the league regular season title and played host to the first national postseason home game with the NIT game against Delaware State.

The women hit the national stage Saturday at 6:16 p.m. with a game against defending national champion Baylor at the McKale Center in Tucson. ESPN2 will televise the game across the nation to showcase the Big Sky Tournament champions.

Congratulations are also in order to senior guard Kelly Golob and men’s head coach Mike Adras. Golob reset the school’s 20-year scoring mark Tuesday night, finishing his career with 1,550 points. Adras was selected by his peers as the Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year.
