Abuse of pizza

In an effort to fill the student section for Tuesday’s game, K-State offered free pizza to the first 2,000 students who arrived. The special food offer was met with mixed reactions. Though enough students showed up to fill the seats seen on the ESPN2 broadcast during play, the section was 2/3 full at best. Some students took advantage of the pizza deal by grabbing a slice and leaving before tipoff. K-State players hope attendance picks up once Big 12 play begins. Its two home games during the NIT Season Tip-Off were played in front of sparse crowds.

Only winners

The NIT Season Tip-Off is the only major early0season tournament that requires host teams to win two games before advancing to the final rounds. Most select their four finalists in advance. While the NIT’s system guarantees a true champion, it leaves the tournament at risk of unappealing matchups in the final rounds, played in New York. Delaware knocked Virginia out of the finals on Tuesday, for example. Had Alabama-Huntsville pulled the upset over K-State on Tuesday, a Division II team would have played two games at Madison Square Garden.

Worth noting

Nino Williams missed most of the second half after suffering an injury to his right elbow. Team trainers treated him on the bench, and he seemed to be in good spirits. Weber said he was fine and could have returned to the game had it been closer.… Weber spread the minutes around again. Thirteen different players saw action.… North Texas rebounded from a surprising loss to Alabama-Huntsville by defeating Lamar 74-59 at Bramlage Coliseum on Tuesday.
