RE: The AAC Needs Another Basketball Team!
WSU got a #10 seed today in the dance. Its obvious the MVC and their strength as a conference is not well respected. So its also another reason to get the heck outa that dumpster-fire of a league (MVC). Also, Illinois St was not invited and was listed as the last team "out". But in reality, that could have been Wichita St at 30-4 if they'd lost the MVC title game in St Louis. Even Charles Barkley pointed that out and said so.

WSU shouldn't hold back and wait any longer and jump to a better conference, one that they want in and one that wants them. IMO

Congratulations to WSU (an NCAA Tournament 10th seed) for their opening win in the NCAA torunament in Indianapolis by beating Dayton (a 7 seed from the A-10) 64-58. That is proof that WSU was not a high enough seed and is an undervalued program because of its membership in the MVC. They need a better league.

RE: The AAC Needs Another Basketball Team!
Today WSU will play Kentucky in Indianapolis. A #10 seed vs a #2. Kentucky will be close to home of course, WSU far from it. This is another reason WSU being in the MVC and guaranteeing a lower seed than deserved is something that needs to be corrected with a league change.

WSU is now 31-4 with their win over Dayton yesterday. It would have been nice to have had two AAC teams in Tulsa (WSU and SMU) as well as the two Big12 teams we have now who are both still alive (KU and Baylor). But an SMU and WSU duo in Tulsa would have been fantastic!!

BTW the distance from Lexington (Kentucky) to Indianapolis is less than 200 miles versus the distance from Wichita (750 miles). A team with a record of 31-4 needs a better seed than #10.

Good luck to WSU.

RE: The AAC Needs Another Basketball Team!
WSU's season ended yesterday with a very competitive game against #2 seed Kentucky. But the good news for them is that they return virtually all their players next year and may very well be a preseason top 25 team.

The big question now is what will occur in the off season with AAC basketball/Olympic sports expansion and WSU. All the arrows point to them leaving the MVC and going someplace else. Stay tuned.
