Billy Takes Nashville - Day 3
To quote an old Hank Williams Song "There's a tear in my beer", Billy Panther did not have a very good day on Saturday at the OVC Basketball Tournament as he watched the Panthers fall in the women's championship game.
However all is not lost as the Panthers had a wonderful season and will still be playing in about ten days as the Women's NIT is just around the corner. EIU secured a bid into its first post-season tournament since the 1988 season when the Panthers made their lone appearance to date in the NCAA Tournament.
The Women's NIT bracket will be announced late Monday night, Monday - March 15. While the destination is still up in the air some possible first round NIT opponents are Eastern Michigan and Kent State from the MAC, Missouri State and Bradley from the Missouri Valley, Marquette from the Big East, Illinois and Northwestern from the Big Ten just to name a few.
No matter which destination calls, look for Billy to give you an update on that post-season trip as well.
