Blogs > The Full-Court Press

Welcome back to the Trentonian's Full-Court Press blog. Yes, we're still alive, and with the 2015-16 season rapidly approaching, it's time to fire up the old blog for another season. Check back here throughout the year for updates on all things Rider and Princeton, including coverage of both the MAAC and Ivy League. Feel free to drop me a line on twitter @kj_franko ( or email

News should be coming soon

Just got off the phone with Mike from the Gazelle Group, who told me the field should be finalized by midnight. As soon as they have a bracket, they'll post it on their web site. 
All Mike knew about Rider was that the Broncs were under consideration. 
It has also been reported that Alabama declined a CBI bid, which opens at least one more spot. 
And it appears the Gazelle Group was unsuccessful in its attempt to persuade any teams to ditch the NIT in favor of the CBI.

If teams such as Alabama are turning down the invitation to the CBI, makes you wonder if it is really worthwhile to have this third tournament.

Add the fact that the Gazelle Group is taking this long to finalize a field of only 16 teams, and one has to seriously wonder whether this tournament will last beyond 2008.
