The buildup to the championship game was great though, Ill St with very good athletes and waves of players and N Iowa with a solid, unflappable team. The flashy team vs the old consistant one. Well it went into overtime before N Iowa was able to pull it out. Ill St player O Eldridge was amazing though and won the tourney MVP--only 2nd time in MVC history that MVP didn't go to winning team.
Now Creighton is solidly on the bubble for an NCAA bid. I am going back and forth believing they will get it, to no chance and they will be going to the NIT. I really believe they deserve the bid, but the NCAA doesn't like giving out those precious bids to non-major teams. I hope to be happy come Sunday, but not really expecting it.
