St. Peter’s cements themselves as an honorary Philly school with a single tweet after advancing to the Elite 8 in South Philly
All hail the Peacocks. the St. Peter’s mens basketball team advanced the Elite 8 earlier tonight after beating the Purdue Boilermakers 67-64 at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia.
The Peacocks story to March Madness is pretty wild. They were 12-11 on February 20th after a loss to Siena, 84-71. From there, they literally just stopped losing basketball games and are 10-0 since. Now, they are the first 15 seed to ever make the Elite 8 of the March Madness tournament.
They took down No. 2 Kentucky in the first round of the playoffs. They beat No. 7 Murray State in the second round. Tonight, they took down No. 3 Purdue. There was no better place to get the win tonight than Philadelphia, which is a city that constantly roots for the underdog.
BET $10 ON ANY NBA GAME MONEY LINE
Tonight, everyone in attendance was rooting for the Peacocks, just like everyone else in America and after the game, the Saint Peter’s Men’s Basketball team fired off a tweet that cemented themselves as an honorary Philly school for the rest of time.
ST. PETER, PLAY THE SONG
Saint Peters will play again with full home court advantage on Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center against the University of North Carolina.
