All fans are invited to attend and it will be the first opportunity to purchase 2013 CAA Championship and 2013 NCAA March Madness t-shirts dedicated to JMU's title and berth in the tournament. MadiZONE Live will also be streamed in the Convocation Center and on JMUSports.com, with interviews of coaches and players prior to the selection show. After a break for the announcement of the 68-team bracket on CBS, MadiZONE Live will come back immediately with the exclusive first comments from Head Coach Matt Brady about JMU's destination and opponent in its first game.
Making their first appearance since 1994, the Dukes qualified for the tournament by virtue of their 70-57 victory over top-seeded Northeastern in the Colonial Athletic Association Championship game on Monday night. Senior A.J. Davis was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player, while seniors Devon Moore and Rayshawn Goins joined him on the All-Tournament Team.
