Mid-Major Mania

CinderellaLast year was the epic run of George Mason to the Final Four and Gonzaga has become a household name in recent years due to their excellent play. Mid-major teams in NCAA basketball continue to get better and better and last night was another testament to this point. The Butler Bulldogs defteated Gonzaga in the Preseason NIT 79-71 to win the title. Butler previously defeated Indiana in Bloomington and then nationally ranked Tennessee to reach the championship. Butler is only one of many mid-major teams who you will hear from this year. Creighton, Hofstra, Southern Illinois, Old Dominion, Oral Roberts and even Missouri State who just upset #7 Wisconsin yesterday. I love the underdog so this year in the NCAA should be fun!
