The Bulls are putting on their dancing shoes!

With a 76-66 win over 2nd seed Toledo Saturday night, the top seed Bulls won the MAC Tournament Championship and in the process, punched their ticket to the NCAA DI Tournament.

The Bulls and Rockets went back and forth nearly all game but the Bulls wound up pulling away in the final few minutes of play.

Wes Clark had a monster game, putting up 26 points in the win and finishing 10-of-15 from the floor. MAC's 6th man of the year, Nick Perkins, chipped in with 16 point off the bench while Jeremy Harris added 10 points. CJ Massinburg who's been one of the Bulls leading scorers, didn't produce much offense tonight (just four points) but came down with two key offensive rebounds in the final minutes of play to help the Bulls hold on for the win.

The Bulls have now won three of the last four MAC Championships and will head to the NCAA Tournament for the third time in program history. The Bulls have yet to win an NCAA round of 64 game.

The NCAA DI men's selection show is set to be held Sunday at 6pm. The Bulls will learn their first round opponent, destination, and when they'll be playing.
