KANSAS CITY, Mo. —- Settling in here at the Sprint Center, with Memphis-Cal State Northridge on tap.
That’s a 2-15 game, and it would be a big upset.
But so was the NAIA game I took in at Municipal Auditorium, where the top seed in the 32-team event lost in the first round.
So goodbye Rogers State. Hello, William Jewell.
Anyway, that’s enough NAIA updates. Things are about to get started here —- and here’s the lineups for the morning tip in front of media, fans from Memphis and Cal State Northridge —- and just about no one else.
CAL STATE NORTHRIDGE (17-13)
The pick: Memphis 80-54.
