We're Dancing: American Eagles


American_medium

 

That guy is probably pumped.  The D.C. area school earned the Patriot League title yesterday over Holy Cross, preventing any sort of hoopla over at ESPN's Page 2.

The Eagles are not to be taken lightly by any means. They start five seniors, all who were members of last year's team, a #15 seed in the tournament. 

More on America's team them after the jump.

Location: Washington, D.C.

Enrollment: 6,000

Record: 24-7 (13-1)

Leading scorers: Garrison Carr (17.8 ppg); Brian Gilmore (12.4 ppg); Derrick Mercer (11.5 ppg)

What to know:

  • if you don't know the name Garrison Carr...know it now.  As 10th in the country in three-pointers made,  the face of the team will probably put up 25-30 points if they can pull off a first round upset.
  • This is a senior laden team, so they're experienced.  At the same time, they have no impressive wins.  Notable losses include 83-54 to Oklahoma, 67-51 to Maryland, and 73-49 to Georgetown.
  • They have the best team defense field-goal shooting percentage, holding opponents to 40 percent a game.

Projected seed: 13; and a dangerous one at that.
