Smallthoughts: Rave of the Week…Yale Men’s Basketball

Start here


Number 12 Yale vs Number 5 Baylor in West Regional

The beauty of the NCAA tournament  or March Madness as it is known by is there is always a chance that out of nowhere a school of lesser importance can …upset a bigger school such was the case Yale vs Baylor. It wasn’t easy they didn’t coast to a win and they had to sweat it out but the BullDogs of Yale upset Baylor 79-75 advancing to the next round. But let’s go back a moment. This is Yale’s first appearance in the Tournament since …1962…the Beatles and the British invasion had not arrived yet to America, John F Kennedy was President, and none of the kids on this squad was even remotely close to being born so yes it has been a long time for this Ivy League School. But they made the most of they first chance since ’62.

Their reward for their upset of Baylor? ….Duke University. Can Yale pull a second upset in a row?
