If for nothing else than the novelty.
I been to every sweet-sixteen for the last 22 years. Not every game but several each year. The 1987 game when Farmer was a junior was close to selling out for the final game.
Farmers senior year in 1988, they made it to the final game at Freedom Hall against Allen Houston and Louisville Ballard. Could be the best championship game ever. Farmer had 51, but lost a close one to Ballard.
Not this year...maybe a Wild Card
