Fairleigh Dickinson ready for matchup with FAU

The hours after Fairleigh Dickinson pulled off its upset of Purdue presented contrasting situations.

Congratulatory calls and text messages flooded the phones of coach Tobin Anderson and his players, with the Knights at the center of the college basketball world as the newest darlings of the NCAA Tournament.

FDU dominates social media. Fans across the country wanted to know more about Anderson and the small Bergen County school.

“I would personally say life changing,” forward Sean Moore said. “That whole game changed everything on our team, staff, students, everyone that goes to Fairleigh Dickinson University, everyone is different now.”
