Middle Tennessee Beats Minnesota
The classic 12 vs 5 seed upset occurred for the 9th time in the last 10 years when Middle Tennessee pulled off the upset vs Minnesota in the round of 64 on Thursday. Reggie Upshaw led the way with 19 points for the Blue Raiders, but four others had double digits as well. The first half was rather poor basketball with a ton of fouls, but in the second half the Blue Raiders went on more runs than Minnesota was able to. Minnesota’s center Lynch recorded 3 fouls in less than a minute which drastically hurt the team’s chances. The final score ended up being 82-71, and now Just like last year Middle Tennessee could be in position for a Cinderella story.
