Dr. Chelsi Day ‘12 (New England, PsyD in Clinical Psychology) is a Sport Psychologist at The Ohio State University. She was quoted in a recent article about March Madness and why fans can identify with the little guy going up against a powerhouse school.
“Kentucky has been a basketball powerhouse for a long time. That’s the sport I would argue they’re most known for. So you’ve got this team with a storied history being taken down by a team I would argue most of us don’t know where Saint Peter’s is and have never heard of them,” Day said. “And they come in and they don’t barely win, they win. And beyond that, we chalk that up as a fluke. That’s exciting. Great job. This team that no one knows about came in and beat Kentucky and then, they keep winning and keep winning by a lot.”
