Lots of our normal season ticket holders were missing in my section... which i thought was weird.  Also lots of people just Southwest Airlines-ing it and picking their own seats especially since they took the Season Ticket sashes off the seats.  People who were in our seats asked if we would sit in different seats a few seats over, I just said those are my good luck SEASON TICKET holder seats.  They sorta rolled their eyes and went and took someone else's seats.

Did you buy season tickets to the post season?

When North Texas finally decides to invest in baseball, we will get over that hump!

I mean, maybe.  But all the reasons people argue for baseball success can be said about any of our programs.

There's a ton of talent in DFW.   Across all sports.

Absolutely did. 

Unlike the conference tourney all access tix, with NIT you just buy the games we actually have which is nice.  I believe I got the email on Sunday night and had all day Monday to buy them.

Yes, they took it over as part of a legal settlement about 15 years ago.

There goes the NIT.

Just a great game.  Drez and Rubin carried us all night.  I like how we work for a good shot, but waiting until the last few seconds results in rushed shots many times.  I think that hurts Perry the most.  He passes up open shots early in possessions sometimes and forces shots late because he has to, instead of shooting in rhythm.  I love the kid, but I think Mac needs to tell him to let it go when he has the shot.

Tough choice.. Both will be very difficult!  This is not the CBI, like we don't get San Francisco State or whatnot.

Virginia. Both teams are defensive oriented and it would be so cool to see such a prestigious program/coach in Virginia and Tony Bennett @ the Super Pit.

I mean, the NIT is probably in better shape now than right before the NCAA took it over.  The last few years it was still being run by the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Basketball Association, it was looking pretty dire.  That's why they (the MIBA) sued in the first place.

Virginia: early losses to Navy (58-66), Houston (47-67), James Madison (49-52) but they did beat Duke by one and Miami twice, by fifteen and then by three.  It would be a defensive slugfest.

Looks like they play a seven man rotation with a couple bigs (6'11" and 7'1") clogging the middle.

MS St.: losses to Louisville, Minnesota, CO St. in OCC.  Struggled to a 1-9 record on the road.

They play a deeper rotation with 9 players averaging over 13 minutes a game.  Overall, a bigger team than VA.

Either game isn't going to be easy.  Thankfully, we play at home.

Has the NCAA ever considered making it 64 teams like the women’s NIT?  
 

Enjoying having 4 conference teams in the WNIT.

I believe right before the NCAA took over the NIT field was 40.  That's as large as it has ever been.

Ok, would love to see it expand to 64 and dump the silly CBI, CIT or whatever they are calling them now. 
 

Easier to focus on the two main tournaments and I think it would make the NIT even more competitive.
