March Mandness 2011 Bracket Shaker St. Johns vs Pitt

St. Johns didn't figure to make March Madness 2011 if you talked to people before the start of the season but after their 60 to 59 point win over vs Pitt at the Garden we guarantee you St. Johns is dancing in 2011. With their latest upset they have now beaten 5 teams in the top 15 and two in the top five which is a resume just about every team in the country can be jealous of. To get this win Dwight Hardy had a dramatic under-hand flip in at the buzzer. This was a real nice win for St. Johns (17-9, 9-5) as they were able to build a strong lead to start the game and then had to deal with adversity with their top two scorers relegated to the bench with foul trouble. Pitt got up by as many as 6 in the second half but St. Johns fought back for another win. Pitt falls to 24 and 3 and 12 and 2 in the wicked tough Big East. Dwight Hardy led St. Johns with 19 points despite the first half foul trouble and Ashton Gibbs had 26 points for Pitt leading all scorers.

March Madness 2011 bracket impact analysis, we don't think this one loss alone drops Pitt off of the 1 line of the bracket but of course gets them one step closer to being a 2 seed. For St. Johns we thought they were going to get in but this essentially clinches it in our mind, what a turn around for this program.
