Richmond Basketball Gets Morehead State in March Madness Bracket After Vanderbilt Upset

Kevin Anderson's floater with just under 20 seconds to go helped seal a 69-66 upset victory over No. 5 seeded Vanderbilt. The victory sets up a matchup of teams that scored big upsets during today's second round of the NCAA Tournament.  

This is the third consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament where Vanderbilt failed to get out of the first round. Last season The Commodores were defeated at the buzzer by No. 13 seeded Murray State in the first round. Prior to that, Vanderbilt lost to another No. 13 seed in Siena. 

Earlier in the day it was Morehead State's Demonte Harper who nailed a three pointer with just four seconds remaining shocking the No. 4 seeded Louisville Cardinals. 

Not many brackets that were filled out today probably had Richmond advancing to face Morehead State in the third round of the tournament. However, that is exactly where the two teams will meet on Saturday.
