NIT/CBI/CIT
What teams will get bids to the other 3 tournaments?

NIT: Bakersfield obviously if they dont win the tourny, but NMSU would still get the at-large bid I would assume unless they lose in round 1 or 2 of the tournament. How do Aggie fans feel about the chances of an at large NIT bid?

CBI: Part of me thinks SU will get a bid here. The last two years we have been in it with a sold out Connolly Complex in 4 CBI games. Last year I was shocked at the invite, but with a record slightly below .500 like last year, I could see another invite.

CIT: Has to be a 4th straight invite for GCU I'd guess.

UMKC could get a CBI/CIT/V16 invite too. We will see. The advantage for SU, just like last year, is the success the CBI has had there the last 2 years.

I mean the CIT is the only thing GCU can get, but we won't know until after Selection Sunday. I kinda feel like GCU might actually turn it down though.

I lowkey hope they do turn it down. Haha. Being totally honest, would rather have a shot at something like the Vegas16 (if it even still exists). That or close the book on 2016-17 & get everything pointed toward next year.

Yeah, but it would be nice to have actually won the thing before we go and say that we are above playing in the CIT

Well UNC-Ashville just was upset in round 1 of the Big South tournament. So NMSU will have some competition for the NIT at large if they dont win the WACt

The Vegas 16 still exits even if they only get 8 teams again. I'd like to see some WAC schools in that tourney. Perhaps GCU and UMKC will be part of that.

RE: NIT/CBI/CIT
Do you guys think the Vegas 16 errrr 8 is of higher value than the CIT? It's a year two tournament that couldn't even fill its allotment. I know it's Vegas, but... if GCU was going to play in any tournament I would want to them play in the CIT, one more shot to win it before they play in the NCAA tournament next season 07-coffee3

I would also be fine, if they said no and moved on to next season. I could see Majerle wanting to do this, but I think GCU's president would not turn down a chance to host a game or two in GCU arena. Or, maybe he's tired of paying the fee... Who knows really. Can't wait till next November!

Majerle said in his post game interview after umkc that they're going "to play in some tournament" after the season finale at Bakersfield

I would take the CIT if there was a wink, wink, nod, nod deal in place to get a cupcake road to the finals like Columbia pulled last year. They got a bye to the quarterfinals and literally never left NY. If not, turn the page and get to the business of 2017-18.

Yeah, you lose extra practice time, but they should be able to make it up with the overseas trip. Still curious to see if it will be Spain or Australia. Wishful thinking though, as I'm sure we'll settle for the CIT again. Maybe the 4th time is the charm.

Vegas 16 definitely has the potential to be and I think they will get there soon enough. They need to focus almost soley on western schools right now.

This year, invite:
(Presumably all schools in conference with better records will get NCAA/NIT bid)

2 P12:
Utah
Washington State
Arizona State
Colorado
Stanford

And the rest pull a mix of:
BYU
San Francisco
Santa Clara
UC-Davis/UC-Irvine
Anyone in MWC but AF or UNLV (unless you really dont care about team quality and go for UNLV)
NMSU/CSUB
Seattle U
Utah Valley
Eastern WA
Weber St
Idaho
Montana
Montana State
Portland State
Denver


Get fans there, get the tournament looking better and making more money, and you have something
