AIC Is College Hockey Cinderella [VIDEO]
It happened in college basketball last year when UMBC upset #1 Virginia and now it has happened in college hockey. AIC (American International College) knocked off #1 St. Cloud St 2-1 Friday night in the first round of the NCAA Hockey Tournament.
That's #16 upsetting #1.
And, what's more, the AIC Yellow Jackets were playing in their first Division I NCAA Tournament game. That's because this is the school's first winning season (23-16-1).
AIC is located in Springfield, Massachusetts and has an enrollment of 1.424 undergraduates.
