Just as the Withum, Smith & Brown partner predicted, the Explorers topped Boise State in play-in action, sending Honeywell's David Ryder home early. Elsewhere in NJBIZ Brackets competition, Kristin Lynn, of Hampshire Cos., held off LIU-Brooklyn alumn Sheldon Blumengold, of Traffic Safety Services, as her alma mater of James Madison advanced to the full field of 64. She told NJBIZ she's more used to cheering on the football team, but if she knocks off No. 1 seed Indiana and Jim Morris, of Rutgers University, she may change her tone.
