There are 6 teams still playing in D-1 college hoops between the NIT and NCAA tourneys. 3 of them are from Conference USA. No wonder Marshall didn’t win their league. I am sure no mid major has ever done this before. FAU, UAB, and North Texas State.
I think Charlotte won the CBI tourney. Insane!
I can dream. Hopefully the NCAA will look at the net ratings and other metrics and realize that whatever they were doing to rate CUSA was too low and the Big 10 was too high
Both North Texas and UAB won last night which means the NIT Championship is between two teams currently from CUSA. Also, I believe CUSA is now 18-1 in the postseason. Pretty damn impressive!!
Wisconsin was absolutely pathetic in the second half against North Texas. 13 points the whole half? Crazy. They had a 12-point lead at the half.
The Big 10 simply shat themselves in post season basketball play.
I just think it’s harder to collude in basketball. Teams are smaller and there’s a ton of talent to be had.
And this for a conference that was about to dissolve. Extraordinary!
