Ball State Cardinals 1989-1990



Hardwood History

The 1989-1990 Ball State Cardinals entered the NCAA Tournament with a 24-6 record before becoming America's darlings of destiny when they upset 5-seed Oregon State 54-53 in the first round.  Then they built a 17-point lead over 4-seed Louisville before hanging on to win, 62-60. That setup a showdown with #1 UNLV in the Sweet 16.  

Even in a Cardinal loss the Ball State team is remembered for playing the eventual National Champions closer than anyone in the tournament including Duke who was humiliated by the Runnin' Rebs in the title game 103-73.
