It’s official! MSU at Louisville Tuesday at 8 p.m. in NIT quarterfinal play. ESPN will have the broadcast. #HailState pic.twitter.com/gmmld13uZX— MSU Men's Basketball (@HailStateMBK) March 19, 2018
Louisville knocked off Middle Tennessee 84-68 to setup Mississippi State's next road game in the NIT. Louisville will host the game Tuesday night at the KFC Yum Center in Louisville Kentucky. The winner will clinch a ticket to Madison Square Garden in New York City. At first glance, Louisville looks like a great team so will certainly be a tough test for Mississippi State. The KPI has Baylor at 32 and Louisville at 33. So State is having to go through 2 of the top teams in the NIT on the road to make MSG. More information later.
