Pre-Season NIT is out

The Pre-Season NIT schedule has been released.  BG is playing in the North bracket which is at Crisler Arena.  Unlike the last "tournament" BG was in, this is one BG could theoretically (emphasis) win.

The bracket is here.  Get your picks in soon.  BG opens on 11/12 at 6 pm against #7 seed Cleveland State. A win would put us against the winner of UM-IUPUI, and a loss against the loser.  That game would be on 11/13, with time TBD.

The Vikings were 22-11 last year, and that includes dropping 7 of their last 9 games.  They lost to Detroit in the Horizon Final and then Stanford in the NIT.

IUPUI was 14-17 and finished in the middle of the pack in the Summit Conference.

Basketball is coming right around the corner, hard though that is to believe.  Our theory always seems to be the more games we play before the MAC the better chance we have to get our sh*t together, and we are following it again.  It is good not to open with UM on their floor.
