Wilmington made a splash in the NCAA Tournament three years ago but their non-conference resume isn’t up to snuff and it could be argued that they needed their win over Hofstra to get in the tournament in the first place. Still Brad Brownell can convince his guys that they can win a game in this tournament especially against an underachieving 6 seed.
