I thought that my shooting basketball was done for the season when the clock hit 0:00 on Friday night at the Quicken Loans Arena. In order to make it to the NCAA tournament, Eastern would have had to win the MAC Tournament. In order to make the NIT, they would have had to have a better record. Little did I realize, there was a third option.
That third option is known as the CollegeInsider.com Tournament and has been around since 2009. They decided that since there are over 300 teams in Division I basketball, there is room for another tournament. Part of me agrees with them but part of me thinks of how many bowl games we have now. Because this is a relatively new tournament, I don't think they have the structure in place to host games at neutral (or relatively neutral sites), so they host the games at campus locations. Because of this, I got a chance to shoot pictures at one more basketball game this year.
Eastern ended up winning 58-54. I'm not sure where the next game will be, but if it is here I will try to make it to the game.
