OUTLOOK: The Rattlers had as dramatic an entrance into the NCAA
Tournament as anyone, as Brian Greene's improbable alley-oop
layup off an inbounds pass with 1.1 seconds left lifted them
over Delaware State in the MEAC title game on Saturday.  It is
the second berth in four years for Florida A&M, which won the
play-in game in 2004 before bowing out against Kentucky.
Offensively, the Rattlers work from the inside out with Sanders
and Greene.  Sanders shoots 64.9 percent from the field. Florida
A&M has won seven of its last eight games.

FIRST GAME: Tuesday vs. (16) Niagara at Dayton, Ohio
