Kansas fans had to know their team was going to get a game when it played Wichita State Sunday afternoon, but they had no idea they were going to get the game that they got.

Mid-Majors still slighted in seedings as the NCAA tournament arrives

Mid-Major conference teams are still clearly the Rodney Dangerfield of the NCAA Tournament brackets. They just don’t get any respect.

When Wichita State traveled to Northern Iowa on Saturday, it marked the first time that two top-25-ranked Missouri Valley Conference teams squared off since 1982.
