CBI / CIT / Vegas 16 Tourney
If UAB doesn't win the Conference USA Tourney, an NIT bid seems extremely unlikely. Would we consider accepting an invitation to the CBI, CIT, or new Vegas 16 tourney (which ODU won last year)?

Doubt it since it costs money...

I hope not. Wouldn't we have to pay to be in that tournament?

I would hope we decline participation in any pay-to-play tournament...

Don't think we would get a invite to them either.

If I could play devil's advocate for a moment...

Is the extra competitive basketball not worth the price we would pay to gain experience for the team and coach?

RE: CBI / Vegas Tourney
I would do it but I am in the minority. I think more like a coach then a fan because I've done it. If you can play games you play games.

Just to clarify. I think the Vegas tourney covered travel expenses and the CBI only costs if you have a home game. That's why our ladies played on the road ubtil the championship game one year. Btw I went to the game and had a great time.

As stated above I don't know we would be invited to either one. I doubt it unless we win out and lose in the championship game. They maybe and it's a weak maybe.

Even if we had to pay I think it would be worth it for getting not only the team but especially the coaching staff more experience.

The power teams are taking over the nit as well so we will are already relegated to at large bids in these things anyway. We don't need to be snobbish about it IMHO

we are a ~.500 team from bottom 10 conference, we don't deserve to play in the post season unless we earn it in our conference tourney. Welcome to the Rob Ehsan era!

If invited, we should go. Rob and the other coaches need the big game experience. The Players need to see a chance at a trophy.
