Last night was the semifinals of the NIT at Madison Square Garden, the World's Most Famous Arena. And it turned out to be an all VCU night. In the first game, Wichita State, who lost at home to VCU in their nationally televised BracketBuster matchup, absolutely crushed Washington State. And in the nightcap, the previous coach of VCU, Anthony Grant, now the coach of Alabama, led his team to a one point win over Colorado. It really does seem like the stars are aligning for the Rams.
Tonight, I will be in New Rochelle for the championship game of the College Insider Tournament, otherwise known as the CIT, or as known by Kyle Whelliston as "the Bracketbusters from Hell". Santa Clara will be taking on the host, Iona for the title. The Broncos feature terrific sophomore guard Kevin Foster while the Gaels feature star forward Michael Glover.
The game will be on Fox College Sports. If you don't have Fox College Sports, follow my tweets at gmoore21566, the Twitter home of The College Hardwood.
