The father-son duo walks off the court after a buzzer beater win over Long Beach State on Saturday.
BracketBuster weekend came and past, and it did not disappoint. Multiple televised games came down to the final possession. Along the way, a couple of teams picked up résumé building wins.
Bucknell is the only team to fall out of the top 25 after a pair of three-point losses to Lehigh and Holy Cross last week.
Here are the top 25 mid-majors in the nation based on my evaluation.
Please note that I consider a mid-major team to be any team that is not from the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, Pac-12, Mountain West, Atlantic 10 or Conference USA.
