We're Dancing: Cal State Northridge Matadors

Cal_st_medium

The Matadors of Northridge have gone through their many trials and tribulations throughout the year, including accusations of stealing from electronics stores to losing their starting point guard to an ankle injury by way of car accident.  Well, despite their lows, they are currently experiencing the highest of highs by earning their way to the NCAA tournament with a 71-66 overtime victory over Pacific for the Big West title.

The brief post season half-life of the Matadors is discussed after the jump.

Location: San Fernando Valley, within the city limits of Los Angeles

Enrollment: 26,854

Record: 17-13 (11-5)

Leading Scorers: Deon Trevant (13.3 ppg), Tremaine Townsend (10.9 ppg), Josh Jenkins (10.2 ppg)

What to know:

  • Northridge opened the season 1-6 and didn't turn their record to a wininng one until February 11th.  Woo hoo!
  • The Matadors surrender 69.9 points per game, good for 228th in the nation.  We'd expect that average to go up after they are escorted to the door by a Top 10 team next week, or even earlier.  Dun, Dun, Dun - Play-in game.

Projection:  The Matadors will be looking at a 15 seed at best but could be reverted to Dayton, OH on Tuesday evening for the play-in game.
