NIT

Postby muskieman » Sun Mar 17, 2024 9:50 pm

X will play At Georgia
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Love this! Was not expecting any bonus games. We actually have a favorable draw. ( not that we are any sort of juggernaut) but hope springs eternal. As Tom Crean said earlier, why would you not want to play and coach more games!
Let have some fun and see where the dust settles.

I heard that six other BE teams passed on the NIT before we were selected. Also, and i have not proof or basis for this, i believe the NCAA does not like Pitino.

The biggest problem is this NEt ranking. Beat a weak team by 40 and get more props than losing against a top 10 by 1. While I never liked playing in the NIT, the team that won the NIT transformed into a team that played elite eight one season later. Quincy also has another chance to lead in 3-pointers made in a season, and the team could have a final winning season with 2 or more wins. Like I said last time X played in the NIT let's just win the whole thing.
