It’s hard enough to get me interested in the NCAA basketball regular season, let alone the postseason NIT Tournament.
But thanks to his delightful postgame comments earlier this week, Kansas State star Jacob Pullen now has me tracking the Wildcats for the rest of the season .
After a home loss to Colorado on Wednesday night in Manhattan sent K-State to its second straight Big 12 defeat, Pullen emphatically stated that he would check out on teammates if their season ended with a bid to the NIT Tournament.
“This is my last go round, I’m not going to the NIT. I won’t play basketball in the NIT. I’m saying that now. If we lose and we have to go to the NIT, I will not play.”
Don’t act like you’ve never seen an NIT violation before.
