HOW THEY GOT HERE

Jared Grasso has finally built a force to be reckoned with in the NEC as Bryant cruised through conference play with a 16-2 record before obliterating Wagner in the final to punch their first-ever ticket to the NCAA Tournament after 14 years competing in Division I. A 70-43 conference title victory was marred by fighting fans in the second half during the blowout, but that will do little to dampen Bryant’s spirits as they wait to see their names pop up on the famed bracket.

WHO TO WATCH

  • Peter Kiss, G, Sr. – 25.1 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 3.3 APG
    • Kiss is the leading scorer in all Division I with that robust average of 25.1 points per game. He does so not as an overly efficient shooter from deep — he holds just a 29.4% clip from three-point range this season — but more as an aggressive slasher closer to the basket.
  • Charles Pride, G, Jr. – 18.0 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 1.6 SPG
