March Canadian Madness
It's March and that means the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament set to get underway. There are ten Canadians in the tournament, but we're focusing on one young man from Montreal. His name is Juan Mendez.
Mendez set the all-time Canadian NCAA scoring record this season while playing for Niagara and was named the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference player of the year. He's got them in the big tournament for the first time in 35 years. The Purple Eagles are seeded No.14 in what's known as the Austin bracket of the NCAA championship and will face No.3 Oklahoma in Tucson, Arizona, on Thursday.
We'll be watching and rooting for the underdog Niagara Purple Eagles and their star from Montreal.
