William & Mary’s Tony Shaver in CAA semifinal

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. – Another march through March ends without an NCAA tournament bid for William and Mary.

The Tribe, seeded fourth in the CAA men’s basketball tournament, were bested by top-seeded Charleston Monday, 83-73 in North Charleston. The loss eliminates William & Mary, playing in its fifth-straight CAA semifinal, from contention for the 2018 NCAA men’s basketball tournament and also continues an unfortunate streak.

The Tribe is one of four original NCAA Division I programs – eligible for every NCAA tournament, to never advance to the “Big Dance”. The other three programs to share that fruitless designation: Army, Saint Francis (NY and The Citadel.

William & Mary (19-and-12) was led vs. Charleston by sophomore Nathan Knight, who shined for the second time this weekend with a game-high 31 points on 13-of-18 shooting along with seven rebounds. Senior David Cohn added 11 points and seven assists, and senior Connor Burchfield chipped in 10 points and eight boards.
