NIT Season Tip-Off To Have Plenty Of OSU Connections

Posted: Updated:

When the NIT Season Tip-Off begins in Stillwater tonight, there will be a lot of connections for three of the teams involved.

Oklahoma State begins the tip-off with a 7 p.m. game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff and the nightcap at 9:30 pits Oral Roberts against Texas-San Antonio.

Oral Roberts is coached by former Oklahoma State player Scott Sutton. Sutton's brother, former OSU head coach Sean Sutton, is an assistant coach.

On the other side of the court, UTSA is led by former Oklahoma State point guard Brooks Thompson.

And, of course, all four of the teams will be playing on Eddie Sutton Court, named after the legendary Oklahoma State men's basketball coach whom both Scott Sutton and Brooks Thompson played for.

The winners of tonight's games will play each other Wednesday, with that game determining the team that will advance to the NIT semifinals, which will be played November 23rd at Madison Square Garden.

The losers of tonight's game will also play each other on Wednesday.
