The beginning of the college basketball season is always pretty slow so don't expect too much in terms of updates. The matrix will be updated again on Monday the 19th. It would've been last Monday but the combination of work and a trip to Hawaii have made my schedule pretty full.
As you know, the main players in the post-season scene are the NCAA tournament and the NIT. But my newspaper is reporting that a third tournament is in the works to allow 16 more teams into postseason play. I honestly didn't know there was that much of a need to find the 98th best team in the land but the people behind the College Basketball Invitational feel there is. Quite simply, teams need to earn their way into the postseason so if you're not good enough to get into the top 97, I'm not sure they deserve to be in any tournament.
