HORIZON: Yet another of the satellite schools of a large public university system, Wisc.-Milwaukee, qualified for its first-ever NCAA Tournament with a 69-52 thrashing of regular season champion Butler. The Bulldogs become the third team from a mid-major in the last two days to fail to win their conference tournament, while still possessing a strong chance of qualifying as an at-large team. Last night's feeble start against the Panthers, however (trailing at one point, 21-4), cannot impress the selection committee, which managed to find a way to keep Butler out of last year's tournament, even though they had only two losses the entire season.
