I'm old enough to remember(no jokes here) when the NIT basketball tourament was a big deal,but that's simply not the case anymore. What it is ,is  a  chance to reward some of the bubble teams that were left out of the more important NCAA tourament which hosts it's  Final Four this weekend in Atlanta and while all eyes will be on Michigan, Syracuse, Louisville  and Wichita State,  the NIT championship game will be played tonight  in New York's  Madison Square Garden and  guess what a Texas team  will be playing for the title.While much of the attention in Waco has been about Britney Griner and the lady Bears , it's the men's program led by head coach Scott Drew that will be taking the court against Iowa tonight in the Big Apple. So although the NIT won't receive all the coverage of the Final Four ,since they are keeping score and giving out a trophy  LET'S GO BEARS bring it home to Central Texas. Good Luck Tonight!
