INDIANAPOLIS - The Norfolk State men's basketball team was a bright spot for Virginia during the 2021 NCAA Tournament, becoming the commonwealth's only team to pick up a win in March Madness after beating Appalachian State in the First Four.

Unfortunately for the Spartans, their time in the Big Dance ended Saturday night when they lost to No. 1 seed Gonzaga 98-55 in the first round.

The Spartans end their year 17-8 after their second MEAC title in the last 10 years, and a second NCAA Tournament win in as many March Madness appearances.
