How about those Saint Peter's Peacocks? They moved onto the semi-final of the CIT basketball tournament tonight with a 49-44 win over Texas State. Seniors Quadir Welton and Trevis Wyche messed with Texas with 9 points and 12 rebounds and 11 points respectively. Peacocks guard Antwon Portley, ironically from Texas, hit a massive three point dagger ball with about five and a half minutes remaining.
The Furman Paladins also won their quarterfinal game so they too will be in the semis. The CIT doesn't use the familiar bracket and number seeding like most are familiar with in the NCAA big dance so just whom Saint Peter's will play next is just not knowable. It'll have to be announced.
Rock on Peacocks!
