    Northern Kentucky University is in the Horizon League championship game on ESPN right now. If they win, they're in the tourney. This is the first year they've been eligible since going D1 (it takes 5 years once a school goes to D1).

    I sat right behind the head coach, John Brannen, for 4 years of high school.

    Just thought I'd let everyone know.

    I attended nku for 2 years and I'm really excited about their tourney appearance. My only hesitation is if the stupid selection committee puts the Norse against the CATS in the first round. That would be obscene in my opinion. I want to root for the Norse! Even putting them against little brother seems bush league.

    Congrats to the Norse, what a cool accomplishment. You can bet they will be a 15 seed matched against the Cats or Cards in the first round.
     
  6. Former Louisville Male and Murray State star, as well as Murray's future head coach Chris Shumate is an assistant on that team.

    Unfortunately, I'll bet they'll be in one of the play in games.

    Lenardi(sp?) says the cats might be in the south region as a 2 seed with NC as the 1 seed. Wv as a 4 seed. I like the bracket but because I like it and its good for UK it will likely not happen..
    Congrats to the Norse, Ive been keeping up. Ill be watching and rooting for them

    I think everyone in Kentucky knew. Cats get hosed again. Looks like Barnhart being on the committee didn't help much.
