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.
