Had a team go to the Final Four (Houston last year) had a team like Wichita State wreck the tourney, multiple years, in a big way.
MWC b-ball have been one and done the past three? years. Have any ever even made it to the Sweet 16? Done damage like Loyola, Chicago?
Had multiple undefeated seasons like UCF? Gone undefeated and challenged the narrative like MAC school Western Michigan? MWC is living off Boise's time in the WAC and the promise of SDSU or CSU. On the court, on the field, AAC is much better.
In terms of profile, results, improving facilities MWC has absolute crickets outside SDSU.
