MARIETTA, Ga. – The No. 2-seed Cal State San Marcos women's basketball team caught the March Madness fever at just the right time, as the Cougars upset top-seed Lindenwood-Belleville (Ill.), 82-68, for the Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) Division I Conference Championship on Sunday at the Eagles' Nest.
