Cvrkalj, Lehigh Get To Face Duke in NCAA Tournament "Second Round"

Playing Duke in the NCAA Tournament is becoming a regular occurrence for former CWOSSA players.

For the third time in 5 years, a CWOSSA alum will suit up on the opposite side of the Duke Blue Devils in the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Stefan Cvrkalj and Lehigh were awarded the #15 seed, and will face #2 Duke in South Region action on Friday in Greensboro, NC.  This comes three years after Jaan Montgomery and his Binghamton Bearcats dropped an 86-62 decision in similar circumstances; the Bearcats were also a #15 seed and the game was played at Greensboro Coliseum.

Of course, it's also the 4-year anniversary (has it been that long?) of Jon House and the Belmont Bruins (a #15 seed in 2008) nearly pulling a stunning upset of Duke --- it took a Gerald Henderson coast-to-coast drive to allow Duke to pull out the 71-70 victory (House is #13 on Belmont):

Here are the stat lines for the former CWOSSA players in tournament games against Duke:

Montgomery (SR in 09) - 5 Min, 0-0 FG, 0-0 FT, 1 Reb, 0 Ast - 0 Pts.

House (FR in 08) - 12 Min, 1-2 FG, 2-2 FT, 3 Reb, 1 Ast - 4 Pts.
