The NKU men's basketball team is one win away from advancing to their first ever NCAA Tournament.
NKU on a March Madness bracket? Yes. That is a legitimate possibility and Norse Nation (I hope I'm using that phrase correctly) has never been so...eh...noticed? As an alum of NKU, I think I speak for most when I say, "Wow. Are you sure? Like 'The' March Madness Tournament?" That seems to be the most common response when hearing that this small school will have a shot to play on the biggest stage in college basketball.
Just one more win tonight in the finals of Detroit's Motor City Madness Tournament would secure this Cinderella team a spot at the Big Dance. Not only that, but they would most likely square off against the University of Louisville for their first ever game in the NCAA Tournament.
The finals are tonight at 7pm on ESPN. Big things are on the horizon for Norse Nation. #NorseUp
