Chaminade’s site figured team lost to Texas
by Chris Chase, USA TODAY Sports
Chaminade’s upset of Ralph Sampson and mighty No. 1 Virginia in 1982 was unbelievable. The team’s 86-73 victory over Texas on Monday night at the Maui Invitational was a stunner, sure, but wasn’t so earth-shattering that it wasn’t to be believed.
Don’t tell that to the website for the tiny Division II school, which is having trouble wrapping its head around the win.
Hours after the Swords upset Rick Barnes and Texas, the official Chaminade website — goswords.com — listed the game as a loss on its schedule/results page.
Perhaps it was out of habit. Chaminade (enrollment: 1,200) entered this year’s Maui Invitational with a 6-76 record in the 29-year history of the event. That winning percentage didn’t figure to get any better when the Division II Swords drew a Longhorns team that was seeded No. 4 in last season’s NCAA tournament.
