Let’s go dancing
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
It’s every sports fan’s favorite time of the year, as well as the most frustrating time.
March Madness has arrived, folks.
Only one school from the Magnolia State earned an invite to the 68-team NCAA tournament that began yesterday with the First Four - a series of play-in games.
The Golden Eagles of Southern Miss were the only team from Mississippi to make it to the big dance, despite losing to Marshall in the C-USA tournament. Southern Miss is the No.9 seed in the East Region, a region that features No.1 seed Syracuse, No.2 Ohio State and No. 3 Florida State. The Golden Eagles’ first match up of the tournament will be against No.8 Kansas State on Thursday in Pittsburgh. Tip-off is set for 11:40 a.m.
