CSU won the final of the Horizon League conference basketball tournament avenging two regular season loses, and on Butler's home floor. Fantastic job. This will be only CSU's second appearance. That other showing came in 1986 when they pushed Indiana's season "over the brink" with a first-round upset. After beating St. Joseph in the next round they were one bad referee call away from an elite 8 appearance. In that game with a couple of seconds left instead of calling a foul on Navy (IT WAS DEFINITE FOUL) the ref called a jump ball with Navy having the possession arrow. David Robinson bulled his way to the rim for the winning bucket.
Congratulations to the Vikings. They will be a low seed for sure, but maybe they can spring an upset or two.
