From Jamie Vaught of the Wayne County Outlook:  “Remember the Colonials from University and their head coach Andrew Toole?

Of course, they are the ones who stunned the basketball world by shocking the mighty Wildcats from with a score of 59-57 in last March's NIT opening-round contest held at Moon Township, a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pa.
