Radford enjoying the ride on NCAA Tournament

Now, it's time for the Wildcats to continue living up to the hype after earning a No. 1 seed in the East Region with a matchup against the victor of the LIU Brooklyn and Radford game.

Just hours after the Radford Highlanders found out they'd been selected to play in the First Four, they loaded up the buses and drove through the night to get here to Dayton, Ohio.

"Just an adrenaline rush". Any chance we get. The guys were back there, very boistrous for the first half of the trip, then it was completely silent the last half of the trip.

And the Highlanders settled in nicely. Only time will tell when it comes to whether the Wildcats will be able to win their second title in three seasons, but it's hard to pick against them when seeing how favorable of a region they're fortunate enough to play in this year.

"It just means a whole lot to us, man". We put in the work. This is what we've been waiting on, man. "Time is now. The time is here for us". We love each other like brothers so.

"Its just the next game on the schedule", said senior guard Christian Bradford.

How they falter: Considering LIU Brooklyn is quite possibly the worst team in the NCAA Tournament-it is No. 258 in Ken Pomeroy's efficiency ratings and No. 232 in RPI-it is almost impossible to imagine the Blackbirds doing anything but failing to make it out alive of their first game.
