Western Michigan was a 75-to-67 overtime winner last night at Wyoming in a quarterfinal game of the College Basketball Invitational. The victory sets up a semi-final matchup for the Broncos tomorrow night at George Mason. David Brown led the way off the bench for Western with 17 points including a game-tying 3-pointer in the closing seconds of regulation. The Broncos improved their season record to 21-and 13.
The University of Minnesota has fired coach Tubby Smith after six seasons. Smith led the Golden Gophers to a record of 21-13 this season, which concluded Sunday with a loss to Florida in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
