Headliners Arizona, St. John's drop out of 2020 NIT Season Tip-Off, per report
Dave Clark
Cincinnati Enquirer

The 2020 Preseason NIT - also called the NIT Season Tip-Off and set to feature the Cincinnati Bearcats men's basketball team for the first time - will be played without headliners Arizona and St. John's, according to a report via Twitter from Stadium's Jeff Goodman.

UC and Texas Tech remain as the tournament's two headliners, according to Goodman.

CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reported earlier this month that the tournament is among early season college basketball events moving to Orlando. The tournament had been scheduled to be played in late November at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The Champions Classic, the Jimmy V Classic, Orlando Invitational (featuring Xavier), Myrtle Beach Invitational, Charleston Classic, Wooden Legacy and Diamond Head Classic also will be played in Orlando, according to Rothstein's report, and fans aren't expected to attend any of them.

Isn't it in NY???

Isn't St. Johns in NY???

Going to be moved to the bubble in Orlando. Also, sounds like Gonzaga is possibly going to join UC and Texas Tech in the tournament.

No matter the 4th team that's still a quality tournament. I assume there are several teams out there trying to feel out a non-con schedule too so that 4th spot shouldn't be too hard to fill.

Slightly off topic but when looking for details on this tournament I came across this site which is comprehensive in listing all the early season tournaments and who's competing in them.

2020 Early Season Tournaments

Funny how after Mick leaves and we start saying "no thanks" to Virgin Islands Paradise Jam and Islands of the Bahamas Showcase, those tournaments went to complete sh!t.

Paradise Jam: Bradley, Buffalo, Cleveland State, FIU, Little Rock, Long Beach State, St Bonnie, and Weber State.
Bahamas Showcase: Austin Peay, Drake, Drexel, Iona, Loyola Marymount, Toledo

Yep, those tourneys weren't much to begin with. For Mick's accomplishments here, of which there were many, securing quality pre-season tournament invitations was largely a failure. Was it a strategic decision on Mick's part to break the team in easy and bring home a trophy, pre-conference? Maybe. But it certainly didn't help our program profile and visibility, playing in obscure locations with limited TV exposure while conference peers were in NYC or Maui on ESPN.

Brannen basically said as much when he took the job. Not only does he like the 2-game MTE, because it allows for UC to add an extra home game as opposed to 3-game MTE's like the Paradise Jam. But he's also explicitly targeting tournaments that are partnered with ESPN, for that exposure you mentioned.

Insane concept for a high-major program like UC's, I know.

Coach Brannen said on Chad's podcast this week:

"For us, you know, one of the things Cincinnati had never done in the past was get involved with ESPN because ESPN runs a lot of them [multi-team early season tournaments], right. Well, we partnered with ESPN now for the next three years. NIT next year in Kansas City and then Maui the following year."

His scheduling has been a huge needed change of pace across the board. He gets it.

RE: 20-21 BBall schedule
Conference schedule format announced:



20 game conference schedule (previous years was 18, this will be two sets of round robin) and they're starting with 3 weekend windows for games (Dec 14-17, Dec 21-23, Dec 28-31). I assume they're going to try and fit 2 games in each window and see how it proceeds from there.

No surprise there. It makes sense given the uncertainty surrounding non-conference games.

Bolded, I'm a little perplexed by this statement and maybe I'm just interpreting it incorrectly. But UC has been partnered with ESPN for the entire existence of the American and for our entire affiliation period with the old Big East. So is his statement suggesting UC (or the previous coaching staff) didn't want to work with ESPN on these high profile pre-conference tourneys? That would be both surprising and disappointing.

Not taking a shot at previous staff: since Mick came to UC, only ESPN event was Maui when we replaced Louisville, rest of time was a Global Sports run Tournament, or another affiliated event, Prior to Maui haven't been in ESPN Tournament since 2002, 2013 were in Jimmy V Classic (another ESPN Event but not a tournament)

I don't think Brannen was necessarily calling out the previous staff or anything like that. I would like to know more about why we're able to be involved in these high-profile events now and weren't before though...

I have to believe recruits want to play in these high profile tournaments against elite competition. Kudos to Brannen for UC's involvement going forward and for a renewal of our all-time best rivalry with Louisville, if only for a pair of games.

Go figure, XU balked at losing their home court advantage and likely playing at an empty or barely full arena when they come to us.

**** Xavier.

Also, what the heck is going on with the Orlando bubble? Just saw Houston is set to play in the preseason NIT there with Texas Tech, Gonzaga, and Auburn.

I don't like it but they're following the terms of the contract. If the shoe was on the other foot, we'd say "eff no, we're not changing things!"
