    Legendary poster Shrink (gone for a while now sadly) loved seeing small, academically strong colleges that were good enough to make the NCAA Tournament (and perhaps win a game or two)

    He'd like some of the field in the 2018 tournament
    Schools and enrollment:
    Bucknell 3571
    Lipscomb 2986
    Davidson 1796
    St. Bonaventure 1660

    Go, giant slayers!

    Shrink really set the tone for this board, him and Front Range. Godspeed, RK.

    The center on our PSU championship IM basketball team was scouted and transferred to Bucknell after being offered a scholarship to go there to play basketball.
