As the Rockets enter the 2021 MAC tournament as the No. 1 seed, we remember the 1980 team that was the last men’s basketball team invited to the NCAA tournament. The team lost a close game to Florida State, 94-91, in the opening round of the tournament. In a photo from that game are, from left, Harvey Knuckles, Jim Swaney and Mitch Adamek. The Rockets face Ball State in the quarterfinals at 11 a.m. Thursday, March 11.
