    five in Adidas.  Converse gives N.E. Louisiana shoes, but the
    company does not count them as a contracted affiliation.
    Mississippi Valley State will wear Nike during the tournament,
    but they do not have a contract with the company (THE DAILY).
    Mississippi Valley State AD Chuck Prophet:  "Whatever the best
    deal is we can get from a sporting goods dealer, we'll buy that"
    (USA TODAY, 3/12).
