Bobcats pull off huge upset, easily knocking off Georgetown

By Athens NEWS Staff

The magic continues.

The Ohio Bobcats pulled off the upset of the NCAA Tournament (and one of the biggest upsets in first-round tournament history according to some reports) Thursday night, taking down Georgetown 97-83, though other early-tournament upsets were brewing. (See coverage in the Washington Post, Associated Press/Rivals.com and the Columbus Dispatch.)

Ohio was the lowest seed to win on the first day, and took down one of the teams expected to make a run at the Final Four. The Bobcat men are set to play sixth-seed Tennessee Saturday afternoon. If miracles continue to happen, and the stars are all aligned, Ohio could get a Sweet 16 matchup with Ohio State.

The Bobcats were led by Armon Bassett and D.J. Cooper, who had 32 and 23 points respectively.


Ohio will go on to face the winner of Tennessee and San Diego State on Saturday.

After the victory, several hundreds students erupted onto the streets and celebrated loudly before being dispersed by OU and Athens Police. Witnesses described pandemonium for about a half hour before things settled down. With finals week ending Friday, there's not expected to be any similar activities Saturday if Ohio does the unthinkable and wins to get into the final 16. Athens Police Chief Rick Mayer issued a press release about the disturbance.

Oh, come on, Ohio wins an NCAA game every 27 years! With the current talk about athletics, this may be the last one ever so, yes, go crazy kids.

A party in the streets ain't going to hurt anyone

As an unbiased observer of last night's two games in Providence, Ohio University had the best team, the best band, and the best cheerleaders of all four teams. It was a clean sweep. Another performance like that and Tennessee goes home while you keep dancing. Good job.
