The past ten years have been mostly forgettable for St. Bonaventure, the tenure's nadir being a 2-26 season in 2005 that came in the wake of scandal and suicide. Last season's 16-15 record was the first time the Bonnies finished above .500 since 2002, and their last NCAA appearance was in 2000.
That changed today, as the underdogs with the wolf mascot took down Xavier 67-56 in the A-10 title game, one the Musketeers were hoping to win and ease their bubble anxiety. You might say the Bonnies welded together the necessary parts for a championship team. [CBS]
