Yet, one of them could still find itself in the postseason, and there's a likelihood the conference's second wild-card team will finish 8-8. Mediocrity personified. On Saturday, Bob Knight's Texas Tech lost to tiny Centenary (enrollment: 903 undergraduate students), 70-66, in Bossier City, La., and, of course, it wouldn't be complete without a Knight fracas.
