Fire Shaka now!!! That is all.
LIGHT THE TOWER BABY!!!!
Yay!! We won the JV tournament!!
This is supposed to be live from Austin
I agree, yet it's better than not winning it. Also better than going out in the first round of the Varsity tournament and ending with a 17-17 record. The 5 game streak is meaningful for our returnees simply because consistency has been a major problem for us the last two years.
Hey, the tower is orange, we can update a banner, we got to see some bonus basketball, and the team didn't lose in the first round. Not bad.
I hope it means something, but after what's happened the last three seasons I have no hope this means anything other than 69.
Keep your head up Vol, we just beat the team that beat the EIGHTH place team in the ACC for the right to play us.
Agreed. If anything, I've never seen this team play defense like that. They worked their butts off in transition d and pressuring the shooter. Starting with the Colorado game, the team seemed to raise their game a little higher each time. For the first time this entire season, I saw consistent improvement.
So good to see smiles on Snoop and Dylan's faces at the end of their college career. Well deserved. Now let's carry it over to next season!
To be honest, this was the best possible result for this team. They probably wouldn't have made it very far in the regular tourney. It's nice for these guys to finish up with a tourney championship. Hook Em!
And we lose our top two players to graduation this year. Hell, to start next year we'll be reaching up to scratch bottom in the rankings next season, most likely. But it's not everyday a team wins a post season tournament, so I'm going to enjoy their achievement and win today.
When's the last time teams from the same conference won the NIT and the real National Championship in the same year?
Add to that, Baylor wimmuns face off agin Notre Dame for that national title.
Pretty sure UConn men and women won BB titles in the same year. (Edit: yeppur, 2004 AND 2014 Huskies won both men's and women's basketball natties, but doesn't look like their conference took the men's NIT in those years)
Edit: OK, so it's Sunday morning, slurping coffee at the PC listening to cool jazz, nothing better to do right now, so went a'googling and looks like there have been 3 previous instances of one conference having winners of the men's natty and the men's NIT. Doesn't appear that ANY conference has had men's natty, men's NIT, and women's natty all at once.
Big 12 has a chance of a first there.
Previous men's double up are:
(year, men's natty, men's NIT)
2006 Florida, South Carolina
1992 Duke, Virginia
1979 Michigan State, Indiana
Women's natty (NCAA) didn't start until 1982. And even if you look at the AIWA it only had natties from 1972 until the NCAA took over the women's natty. No matches for the AIWA either.
Can't say i want it to happen this year. I'll be rooting for TT but not Baylor
Another thing to think about; UConn won both men's and women's natties in 2004 and 2014, the only Division I school to do that in the same year, though Central Michigan won both in Division II in 1984.
However.... that school out in West Texas (not UTEP) has a chance to win both --- remember their women won in 1993, though not in the same year.
But, we're talking Texas Tceh, not UConn, not North Carolina, not Stanford, not Maryland.
FYI, the only schools I could find who've got banners up for both men's and women's natties are:
UConn, 4 men's, 11 women's
North Carolina, 6 men's, 1 women's
Stanford, 1 men's, 2 women's
Maryland, 1 men's, 1 women's
Good on 'em!
We had to beat an in-conference team that had beaten us twice this season AND that previously LOST to the Bison.
