The brackets have been released, and Wichita State opens the tournament against former assistant coach, Tad Boyle and his Colorado Buffaloes at 6:30 Central, on November 17th. It will be televised on ESPNU and most likely ESPN3.com. The winner will play the winner of Alabama and Maryland. This opens up the possibility for a rematch of the NIT Championship game, or for Turgeon to play his old employer. Like I stated in the initial write up of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, there are plenty of storylines for this tournament to go on. The bright side of this tournament is that we have one of the best brackets to play through, for RPI improvement.
