The Skinny: The Bonnies enter the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012. St. Bonaventure had its 13-game win streak snapped against Davidson in the conference tournament semifinal, but have 25 wins to match the program record set by the 1969-70 Final Four team. Senior guard Jaylen Adams is the A-10 co-player of the year.
“Florida’s got four or five days on us, so we’ll be watching tape on the plane,” Schmidt said. “We’ve got a 2 a.m. flight, but it couldn’t be a better flight. Ever.”
St. Bonaventure set a school record with its 26th win. The undersized Bonnies lack depth and were glad to get Stockard back from the hamstring injury. He’s scored 21, 31, 22, 19 and 26 points in the last five games.
St. Bonaventure’s 26 wins surpass the 25 by the 1969-70 team that reached the Final Four.
St. Bonaventure’s win Tuesday was its first in the NCAA Tournament since 1970, when it beat Davidson, N.C. State and Villanova before losing to Jacksonville. The Bonnies had lost three NCAA Tournament games — in 1978, 2000 and 2012 — since that last win in 1970.
