Local TV stations all came to the College to feature the small college of Big Dreams and the men's team which fell just three points shy of it's biggest dream, a trip to the big dance.

City newspapers, which started telling the Terriers story earlier this year, followed up with some amazing pieces on the hard fought NEC Championship final, won 66-63 by Robert Morris.

The New York Post compared the home court atmosphere at the Pope Center to college basketball's elite and commended the team's effort.

The Daily News and the New York Times also added lengthy pieces describing the agonizing final seconds.

The game was also an excuse for alumni to make their way back to Remsen Street; among them were Congressman Peter King '65 (R) and John Delach '65 who joined Chairman of the Board of Trustees John Tully '67
