A couple of high-profile upsets (including a huge win over eventual national champion UConn) under Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown, all in the newly remodeled Moody Coliseum, made the Mustangs the hottest ticket in town. The team fell short, winding up as runners-up in the NIT. But next year it should get even better with the arrival of top recruit Emmanuel Mudiay.
The Rangers are still No. 1 in fans’ hearts even as the team endures an almost laughable string of injuries.
