LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The IU Southeast men's basketball team is celebrating their Final Four run. It was the first appearance ever for the school in the NAIA Final Four.
It capped off a 30 and 5 season. This was Coach Wiley Brown's third trip to a Final Four game. The first two were as a player with the University of Louisville.
As coach, he now has a different perspective: "In the back of your mind, you're thinking I want to go out there and help these guys out. But those days are over with, so I trust these young men. They're athletic, they work hard, and they know exactly what I expect out of them -- just go out and play hard and have a smile on your face regardless what happens throughout the game."
IU Southeast lost in the Final Four to Wisconsin's Cardinal Stritch University, which went on to win the N-AIA Division Two championship.
