14.Mar.2012 Basketball: Western Illinois @ Oregon State
Can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually looking forward to the CBI. Mainly because there are some good teams who've had recent NCAA success playing in it, and I'd like to see the Beavs advance tonight and get a shot at them. Beating a Butler or Pitt, even if they're down, would be something to build off going into next season.
I hope the Beavers take this tournament seriously. There might be a tendency to say, "Oh, it's just the CBI, who cares?", and it's easy to understand the mentality. But, it's games like this that don't really matter where teams build character and learn how to "get up" (that's what she said?) for every opponent.
