    NIT tripleheader tonight on ESPN2 if you can handle it. Miami vs. Alabama, who do we want to win? Who has the better big men? I saw parts of both of their previous games, Alabama looked more impressive to me. Who is the better matchup for the Buffs? Thoughts?

    I'd rather play Miami. Mostly based on style of play. I think the score is in the 70s or 80s against the Canes, while Bama will keep it in the 60s.

    Miami. Alabama will play a slower style of game, and pretty tough defensively.

    I think we can beat both as well. Matchup-wise, I think Miami is the preferred choice, but considering how the ACC has fared in the NCAAs as opposed to the SEC, it might be a little bit of a fallacy to think Bama is a tougher opponent than the Canes.

    I only watched Alabama play this season and they looked pretty good. They got some big guys that can run the floor and can cause problems for us.

    Totally agree. I think we win against either but Bama will have more match up issues

    The last NIT game Bama played I was afraid of them. Let's go Canes.

    I've met Bama fans who I like. (Shout out to Bama Chuck)

    Can't say the same for the U.

    I'm going for Alabama just for the spirited conversation between fan bases.
