MSU wins it by 5 after NAU literally couldn't stop tripping over themselves on the last two possessions.

What a disappointment for the players, especially seniors, that they won't be able to complete the season. Assuming the the Cats won, Tootel and Nuanez said the conference was lobbying for a higher seed than normal. Apparently the conference thought they had a chance of getting as high as the 10-12 range.

NoCo got a #10-seed in 2018, but their RPI rank was a bit better than MSU's this year. NoCo also beat LSU & DePaul out of conference that year, while MSU's non-conference this year wasn't all that good.
