I like moving the 3 point line. The current one is barely more than a mid-range jump shot for a lot of these guys but the pro line is too deep, moving it out that one foot plus may add just a little more space for the inside guys to work.

My take on our NIT draw-I don't think it could have gotten much better. Tuesday tip against an east coast team who basically has to fly out here tomorrow. Huge advantage there. Anthony Grant is a Billy Donovan disciple, so they're a good match up for us from a tempo standpoint. Good team though-played a much tougher OOC than we did........and pushed Virginia and Mississippi State, among others. Not that far-fetched that Norfolk State upsets Alabama, either. 8 seeds in the NIT have a history of pushing/beating big name opponents-some examples:

2018-UNC Asheville loses to USC in OT
2017-Cal State Bakersfield makes the NIT Final Four
2016-Wagner beats St. Bonaventure
2015-South Dakota State beats CSU

Note if there are any students out there (excuse me if this has been already been noted somewhere.) - the student sports pass evidently does NOT include tomorrow's game, but per the below 500 free student tickets will be available on a "1st come ..." basis at the Champions Center.
(In any case, I'd consider an opportunity to see a great live game that includes a team I care about for only $5 as still a steal.)

All those 8 seeds won their conferences in the regular season, so the first round of the NIT is great.

Realistic expectation for attendance?

Weeknight conference games had the following:

Wash St. 6,184
Oregon St. 6,839
Arizona St 6,273
UCLA 7,797

I'd say 7K would be a good turnout, but would hope for 7.5K
