Yeah. No kidding. And they had Danny Manning!

My favorite NCAA run ever (not counting each and every Zag team's run to at least the Sweet 16) is the 1990 LMU run. It was incredible for so many reasons. What very few remember is that UNLV (the eventual champion) had a miracle win against Ball State in the Sweet 16. If Ball State had held on and won (and they SHOULD have won the game), then LMU would have played Ball State in the Elite 8.

LMU would have won a game against Ball State by over 20, and it could have potentially become the greatest Cinderella story in American history. The 1980 USA hockey team would be 2nd in a lot of lists where they currently are placed 1st.
