Motivation will decide NIT title

By Aaron Moore  () 


Not long after the NCAA field was announced Sunday, the National Invitation Tournament bracket was revealed — with far less fanfare. Don’t be influenced by the lack of media attention for the NIT. Even though these teams were left out of the NCAA tournament, college hoops junkies can enjoy plenty of action. Even more importantly for bettors, winning tickets are out there to be cashed. 


To help handicap the “other tournament” starting this week, here is some relevant information about the NIT, which ends March 28. Instead of the usual 32 teams playing early-round games on campus and the final four meeting at Madison Square Garden, this year’s version has 16 teams playing in a Texas bubble in Frisco and Denton. 


As a treat for bettors, for the first time since 2003, a third-place game will act as a lead-in to the championship.
