Did Oklahoma State earn NCAA invite?
After playing a very weak non-conference slate against the likes of Southern, Pacific, UMKC, Prairie View and Texas Southern, the Lady Cowboys went 8-8 in the Big 12. They lost in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament to lowly Kansas. Somehow, that earned them a trip to the Big Dance.
The Techsters, 12-4 and regular season co-champs of the WAC, also lost in the first round of their postseason tournament. Their non-conference slate included contests against LSU, Mississippi State, Iowa, Kansas State and Western Kentucky.
Maybe the Lady Techsters didn't deserve an NCAA invite. But you could certainly make an argument that they deserved one as much if not more than Oklahoma State.
