WKU Beats Calipari, Breaks Top 40

 John Calipari's 1996 UMass team barely survived their first round game of our 16 new teams, with an 80-78 win over Liberty 2023. Western Kentucky 1966 also barely survived, beating Buffalo 2004 by an 84-82 score.

The both won two more games to face off in our championship today, and despite two of his teammates fouling out, Clem Haskins (22 points, 10 rebounds, 5 steals) was just too much in a 74-67 win for the title of our 16-team tournament.  We ranked Western Kentucky 115th of our all-time great teams based on their cards, but they rose to 39th with the 4 wins, while UMass dropped from 53rd to 73rd.
