Previewing the games in Providence

By Andy Katz

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- What I’m looking forward to seeing Thursday in Providence:

Can I hope for upsets and last-possession games?

In years' past I’ve had insane jealousy as I’ve missed out on some of the best first and second-round games in other regionals. I’ve had the vanilla brackets, save my never-forget moment in Worcester in 2005 when Vermont’s T.J. Sorrentine beat Syracuse with a deep 3-pointer. I can’t recall ever seeing an arena erupt in unison the way the DCU Center did that day. I still remember Tom Brennan raising his arms in unison. It remains one of my greatest memories covering this tournament in 20 years. So please give me something like that.
