Great for Manny -- I always liked his game.
Maybe we'll see him in the dance, perhaps playing the Zags?

Per A. Katz:

Indiana State has an NCAA tournament résumé -- now.

Wins over Ole Miss and Miami in the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu have legs that will reach to March. The road win earlier this week at Wichita State keeps Indiana State within distance of the Missouri Valley title. The Sycamores are only a game out of first place with one game to go against each of the league leaders, Creighton and Wichita State.

Now the trick is to get a power-rating game worthy of attention when the BracketBusters games are announced Monday at 6:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU.

The Sycamores represent the perfect candidate to benefit from this final season of the event, which was built to prop up teams outside the power six conferences. The event has wilted a bit in its importance, as higher-profile teams outside the power six have declined to participate, or in some cases, the entire conference is no longer a participant -- like the CAA this season. This may be the weakest the CAA has been in a long time, so its absence won't be as disturbing (see: no more VCU). Schools like Louisiana Tech -- leading the WAC -- fellow contender New Mexico State, Patriot League top teams Bucknell and Lehigh, and America East leader Stony Brook are all not in the event.

Indiana State (14-7, 7-3 in the Valley, power rating of 43) needs to get a quality matchup to help its cause.

From the same article:

The Gaels are also a home team and are almost a lock to host Creighton in the highest-profile game of the weekend.

St Marys vs Creighton would be a fun game to watch
