Mar 17, 2023

The Greensboro Coliseum was rocking for an early start between 14-seed Kennesaw State and 3-seed Xavier in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

In the school's first-ever appearance in the tournament, the arena had a strong pro-Kennesaw State contingent, as fans of the Owls made the nearly six-hour drive from Kennesaw, Georgia, to Greensboro, North Carolina.

Xavier went on a 15-0 run late in the second half to take the lead, holding off Kennesaw State, 72-67, to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
