The Division I Knights men’s basketball team’s historic run in the NCAA tournament came to an end on Sunday night against No.9 Florida Atlantic University. The Knights played a tough game falling just short 78-70. We salute the Knights for their epic performance! 

The Knights made history in defeating No. 1 seeded Purdue University 63-58 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament! This is only the second time ever that a No.16 seed defeated a No.1 seed. The Knights earlier defeated Texas Southern University 84-61 in the first four matchup to advance to the first round of the NCAA Tournament.  

The Knights punched their ticket to the 2023 NCAA Tournament for the seventh time in program history under the leadership of first-year head coach Tobin Anderson. Below, grab your official Knights NCAA gear and see where they have been featured in the news!
