In the latest installment in his "Best Pro Players in School History" interview series, CHN writer Jon Teitel spent some time with Drake legend Willie Wise, who was also a member of the Bulldogs' lone Final Four team back in 1969. "Wonderous Willie" went on to have a successful career in the ABA with the Utah Stars, then moving on to play in Denver and Seattle after the ABA/NBA merger.
Cornell got things started on Friday night with their third consecutive NCAA Tournament berth and three more guaranteed themselves spots in the Field of 65 on Saturday. In the most anticipated of the three finals it was Murray State picking up their 30th win of the season, dethroning defending Ohio Valley champ Morehead State 62-51 in Nashville. Isaiah Canaan scored 16 points off the bench to lead the way for Billy Kennedy's team, who will represent the OVC in the Big Dance for the first time since 2006.
