It’s March, folks, which means America is dethawing and basketball season is finally heating up. During this time, March Madness tends to get all the college-basketball attention. And we get it. Seeing the best of the best go toe-to-toe is kind of the reason we watch sports.
Meanwhile, there’s another tournament that’s going to be televised this March, and it goes by the derogatory-sounding name “NIT.” Yes, it’s basically a shameful consolation competition for most teams, but for basketball fans, it can make for some decent TV thanks to the tournament’s experimental rule changes.
