AState opts against Postseason Basketball
Per Mohajir, we will turn down opportunities to play in the CIT/CBI/Vegas tourney's.

Season ends at 20-12. Had an NIT at large chance heading into the Alabama road trip, but pretty much everything fell apart from there.

Y'all had a great season. . . . 20 wins is nothing to sneeze at, expect you'll be a thorn in the sides of many a conference foe next season . . .

Cross was the obvious choice for coach of the year.

2nd and 3rd were probably McAsland and Kaspar though based on preseason expectations for those teams.

After opting against playing late season basketball, this is a water is wet revelation, no?

Just curious -- was there a reason given? Idaho has played in 4 of these things since 2009 and will probably do it again barring a couple wins in the next 30 hours. The first one was kinda fun because it followed our first OK season after a long string of bad ones, but each has been progressively less interesting and I couldn't tell you what any of it has done for our program.

No explicit reason was offered from Mohajir - but I suspect losing six of our last eight games was part of the decision.

We finished 4-8 in our last 12 but it appears we want to play again-- in CIT or any tournament. Surprised me last night on post game that Byington pretty much lobbied for a chance for us to play somewhere. Not sure we shouldn't just sack up the equipment at this point

I know some will claim that this years finish is part of the reason, but we've declined every CIT/CBI offer since the tournament's came into existence. Administration just doesn't see the benefit to a pay for play tourney.

I'm reasonably confident it was always going to be NIT/NCAA or bust for us. Of course, we were within range for an NIT bid until we fell apart late, so it certainly played a role.

It goes back to Mohajir.
Grew up in Kansas City, grew up watching the Jayhawks, worked for them two different times. I've talked with him at length and despite what many of our fans thought as we waited out Brady's contract, he's a hoops head, loves basketball.

That KU influence I think skews his view. The trend today is to bonus up contracts and while he agreed to a wide range of bonuses he wouldn't agree to any for CIT and CBI so they aren't in the contract.
