TSU states case for NIT berth

If Murray State Coach Steve Prohm was a member of the NIT selection committee, Tennessee State could go ahead and start packing.

The Tigers blew the chance to go to the NCAA Tournament by losing to No. 12 Murray State in the OVC Tournament championship at Municipal Auditorium on Saturday.

But TSU did take Murray State (30-1) to the wire before losing 54-52 and, more importantly, gave the Racers their only loss (72-68) on Feb. 9.

The Tigers (20-12) were enough of a headache for Prohm to endorse them for one of the 32 slots in the NIT.
