NORTHERN IOWA UPSETS KANSAS AGAIN! ONLY THIS TIME AT MSG IN THE FORM OF THE NUGGETS vs KNICKS.

After one of the biggest upsets in NCAA history, the Knicks took inspiration from

the Northern Iowa team that beat #1 Kansas. GALLO and DOUGLAS looked like
keepers last night as MELLOW did his thing, however, this scrappy Knick team pulled
out a close one from the western conference elite. Was this game a knock on coach
Daunting for keeping Douglas on the bench all season? All said and done, the Knicks looked like World beaters last night. Is it a sign of hope or just another March madness upset?
