Tournament Summary – Sunday, March 17, 2002

by Dan Hauptman

News and Notes
Happy St. Patrick’s Day. We’re not about to change the color of the site to green.

On Saturday, about 125 NAACP protesters marched to the steps of the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville, S.C. The protest at the NCAA Tournament site was part of a continuing fight to remove the Confederate flag that sits atop the South Carolina Statehouse.

Wake Forest lost to Oregon, due in part to the shoulder injury sustained by Craig Dawson. The senior guard hurt his left shoulder in the second half and returned to the bench late in the game with his arm in a sling. Dawson injured the same shoulder a year ago and missed the NCAA Tournament and was forced to have surgery in the offseason.

Two double-digit seeds have advanced to the Sweet 16 (#12 Missouri, #10 Kent State). Last year, three double-digit seeds advanced to the 3rd round. The record is five double-digit seeds in 1999.
