Wichita State Wins NIT

In another example of mid-major basketball teams knocking off programs from major conferences, Wichita State, the fourth seed in the NIT hailing from the Missouri Valley Conference, defeated the Crimson Tide at Madison Square Garden tonight 66-57.

The Wichita State Shockers lived up to their name tonight, outplaying Alabama throughout the game and taking control in the second half.  The Crimson Tide only made two of fourteen 3-point attempts while Wichita State went 7-15 from beyond the arc.

Always like to see SEC teams go down, and hope this recent trend of mid-majors upsetting the ‘major teams’ continues through this weekend.
