Let's not kid ourselves, any postseason tournament is a good thing for UTA. This squad deserved some sort of recognition, and this looks like a tournament that we could do pretty well in.
Go Mavs.

While it does not have the prestige of the NIT, the losses were too numerous to believe we could get there.

​I am very thankful to see what the Mavs can do in the CIT. We aren't at a place like New Mexico State or Western Kentucky with a dearth or postseason history. We've been playing 4-year ball in the NCAA since 1959-60 and this will be our fifth appearance in a postseason tourney.

​With such a young squad, that is a great opportunity to keep playing. I'm very happy for the possibility of one more game at CPC.

I think we can make a nice run in this tourney. Winning an actual postseason game is the next step in our progress as a program. Plus, the more we win the more practice time we get.

In a move that surprised me a little, we head to New Jersey on Thursday to play NJIT.

​Thought for sure we'd host this round.

Well anyway, we're playing NJIT in the quarterfinals. If we can win in Jersey, maybe CPC will host the next round. Anybody going to Greasemonkey's on Thursday?

If we played NJIT five more times at their place, I'm certain we'd win all five. Dont really know what happened yesterday.

I had to take some time to detox from basketball after we lost. I think we kind of had a little meltdown in the game after the best start we had in a while. The guys just seemed a bit off. Wonder if something happened within the team. Anyway, it was a great season much better than I would have expected after Hervey went down. I think this team will definitely battle for the SunBelt title next year.
