      The start of Western Illinois' NCAA tournament run in Year 24, continued

      Before we pick up with the Leathernecks in the first round of the NCAA tournament, here’s a recap of everything that has happened so far this season: Western Illinois went on a Cinderella run to win the national championship as a No. seed last season, our fourth title since I took over the program. We lost two starters from that team to the NBA, but enter the new year with the rest of the rotation still intact.
