The NITtany Lions

Congrats to the Penn State NITtany Lions, as they were "crowned" the champions of the NIT Men's Basketball Tournament Thursday night after beating the Baylor Bears 69-63.

I don't know how much of an accomplishment this really is. If the NCAA Tournament is the "Big Dance," then the NIT must be the "Small Get-Together."

Except instead of taking a good-looking date to the gathering, they end up taking their cousin... except for guard Stanley Pringle, who was too busy in the library to find a date for the occasion.

So congratulations Penn State, you are the 66th best team in the nation this year. Wear the crown well.


  1. And Florida was 73 or so, right behind Kentucky at 70.

  2. How 'bout them WNIT champs? Let 'em know...
