Beats the heck out of a case of Turtle Wax. Or, if you've got a cool car, maybe it doesn't.
But as a lovely parting consolation gift, the Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off folks have placed the four-team consolation round at Oral Roberts and sent FIU there, along with SMU and Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
FIU gets the Bluffsters Monday at 6 p.m., then host Oral Roberts at 8:30 Tuesday. Yes, they're getting the host school on the rear of a back-to-back, as they did Virginia Tech Tuesday, but at least there's more than 24 hours difference in the start times in this case.
