EKU is going dancing; Commonwealth will have at least 3 in NCAA's

It has been 7 long years but for Eastern Kentucky it was worth the wait. The Colonels are back in the NCAA Tournament, after upsetting Belmont last night 79-73 in the OVC Tournament Finals.
Corey Walden finished with a game high 29 points and tournament MVP honors.
In 7 trips to the Big Dance, the Colonels have never won a game, but current bracketology predictions have EKU as high as a 14 seed. That means the Colonels would avoid projected first seed powerhouses Florida and Wichita State.
So with Louisville and Kentucky both virtual locks to get NCAA Tournament bids, the Commonwealth should have at least 3 teams on the men’s side dancing.
