Cleveland State had to win four games to clinch the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament against a well-rested No. 1 seed Butler, who benefited from the double bye, which meant they just had to win two games.
INDIANAPOLIS -- Twenty minutes after the game and Wright State coach Brad Brownell was still seething as he took questions about his team's 62-57 loss to the 22nd ranked team in the latest AP Poll.
Wright State had scored 22 field goals to Butler's 17 field goals, out-shot Butler from beyond the arc by making eight 3-pointers to four for Butler and committed just eight turnovers to Butler's 10 turnovers.
The Raiders held all five of Butler's starters to under 50 percent shooting.
