    Norse lead the whole game but fall behind in the final 2 minutes. Pull one out when Cleveland State 3 for the win hits nothing but air.

    McDonald held in check with collapsing zone all night scores 11 of NKU's last 13 points and has 13 rebounds and 5 assists.

    It's amazing what a TEAM can do when players don't care who scores, only that they win. This team just that kind.

    What an unreal season for the Norse. Brannen has to be the Horizon League coach of the year, doesn't he?

    Winning overall record....Check

    .500 or better conference record....Check

    20 wins is definitely obtainable....

    Is a postseason berth in the cards?

    I wouldn't be surprised if a CBI invitation is extended to the Norse. I think NIT may be a stretch. And if they get hot enough, possibly win the Horizon and land a 16 seed in the big dance.

    I personally think they'd end up as a 14 or 15 seed if that were to happen. The Horizon league is significantly better than a lot of the lower level conferences.

    Saw in the box score that Jeff Garrett didn't play....Any specific reasoning?

    Would be so awesome to see them win the conference and get in the Dance!
