American University is a surprise entry out of the Patriot League, winning the conference tournament and earning the automatic bid to the 2014 NCAA tournament. Coach Mike Brennan is a product of Princeton and runs the Princeton offense. The Princeton offense is much like the Syracuse zone, teams only get to see it every so often.
