With the NCAA tourney in the rearview, will the Buckeyes have enough interest to 'justify' their #1 seed in the 2008 MasterCard NIT Tournament? We'll find out starting Tuesday night at 7pm when Ohio State takes on #8 seed UNC-Asheville.
If you're sitting there thinking there's something unique about the Bulldogs, you are right. They're the squad with Kenny George, the 7'7" star of the "Messin' With Sasquatch" commercials. Not really but dude is large although he averages just 19.5 minutes per game due to some brittle knees likely caused by Gigantism.
The Bulldogs are more than just a pretty face, however, winning the Big South regular season crown. Stay tuned for Corey's breakdown. We know you're pumped.
Syracuse, Arizona State and Virginia Tech grabbed the other #1 seeds while Florida was tabbed a 2 seed making this the first time since 1980 that the previous year's NCAA finalists failed to make the real tournament.
