    Just a short tweet, but he´s in PR with the team.

    Participating teams this year include Northwestern, LSU, Georgia Tech, VCU, Georgetown was the 2010 Champion.

    Shouldn't we be attractive to the NIT or Maui?

    The Charleston Classic is an early season tournament just like the Puerto Rico tipoff.

    Nice to have the Buffs in the southeast! Would love to make the trip down for that one, Charleston is a great town. Our draw can't be anymore brutal than this year's.

    Preseason NIT is the next one I want to be in. Especially if we can be a host site for the early rounds.

    That's a pretty tough draw but should be a good measuring stick for the program. Dayton is always well coached. St john's is a mid level Big East which is a great challenge for us and I think we all know Baylor.

    Tougher tournament than it looks. Catching Charleston at home would be a bitch, and is exactly the type of thing that usually happens to us. Dayton is always solid, and Auburn should be much improved by the time next season rolls around.

    It might be a little early to be making these bold predictions, but with the path that CU is on, there is a good chance they could win that tournament, depending on how many cars Drew buys.
