My Aces Are in the Post-Season for the First Time Since 1999

Yesterday, the University of Evansville women's basketball team upset Creighton (with a last-second shot) to win the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Aces are 15-18 and almost certainly will be a 16 seed and an appetizer for Connecticut or Oklahoma. Still, an NCAA tourney bid is an NCAA tourney bid.

The men meanwhile, having failed to earn a bid to the NCAA, NIT, or CBI tournaments*, will be hosting Belmont in the inaugural College Insider Tournament (CIT). The CIT, which also features conference foes Drake and Bradley, is probably the perfect tournament for the Aces.
