Almost every show, weatherman Al Roker ventures out into the crowd and interacts with them giving the crowd members a chance to get their "15 Minutes of Fame". This morning Roker walked over to some Bonnie fans and it was awesome to see some Western New York in the Big Apple.



The Bonnies made it to the Final Four after they beat Virginia last week 52-51. Kyle Lofton made two free throws with five seconds remaining and Osun Osunniyi blocked a shot at the buzzer to give St. Bonaventure the win.

Bonaventure has a 23-9 record finished fourth in the Atlantic 10. Meanwhile, Xavier has a 21-13 record and tied for seventh in the Big East.

The winner of the St. Bonaventure/Xavier game will advance to the NIT title game to face either Washington State or Texas A&M.
