The winners of the CUSA. MAC , & Sunbelt tournaments will get automatic dance tickets and are too difficult to predict. Every year a few regular season winners are sent to the NIT. Western Kentucky & Georgia Southern are atop the first two conferences, and Buffalo and Toledo are atop the MAC divisions. I think the CUSA gets a possible extra ticket. UAB is tied for the second with La Tech who they just walloped and will be my dark horse for the extra ticket. Anyone remember when they brought in Gene Bartow to kick start the new program almost thirty years ago? So much is up in the air with three weeks to go in the regular season.
Four players headed for solid NBA careers.
