"Head coach Mike Krzyzewski, winningest coach in NCAA tournament history. Who will Duke meet? The Binghamton Bearcats, winners of the America East conference tournament, they won it. They're going to their first-ever NCAA tournament."

Watching the selection show with fans and friends the Bearcats found out they get to take on Duke in Greensboro, North Carolina.

It's a tough test for the #15 seed to take down a titan, but it came as no surprise to their coach.

"Father Corey said something today at mass about playing Duke and I guess as he would say, maybe he's a prophet," says Coach Kevin Broadus. "I hope his prophecy is saying that we will win this game."

"I'll play against anybody in the country," says junior guard D.J. Rivera. "Just as will my team. We were happy to see our name pop up on the screen, for sure, great experience, but we're ready to play on Thursday and we're going to get a win."

Is that a guarantee? I don't know...

Many thought the Bearcats would be a 14 seed, instead they earn the #15.

It's worth mentioning, in NCAA tournament history a 15 has knocked off the 2-seed just 4 times.
