We have reached the Championship of the NIT at the worlds most famous arena, Madison Square Garden. Thursday’s match up is between two teams who play very different styles.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the TCU Horned Frogs will battle it out to be crowned the NIT champions. No matter the outcome both of these teams will be very happy with the momentum they gained for next year in this tournament.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Optimism around the Georgia Yellow Jackets is rising. Coming into the season there were no expectations for this team except to lose a ton of games.
A lot of people believed they would have problems even winning an ACC game, so the fact that they are in the NIT championship game is unbelievable.
The players seem to have bought into first year hard coach Josh Pastner and it has resulted in wins. The Yellow Jackets have not had the easiest route to get into this championship game.
Their hardest game was the first one when they had to beat Indiana by a final of 75-63.
Since that point they have beat Belmont, Ole Miss and CSU Bakersfield. In their game against the Roadrunners they pushed the pace a bit and that turned out to be the difference.
The Yellow Jackets were led by Josh Okogie against the Roadrunners. He had 22 points and nine rebounds to lead the Yellow Jackets to a 76-61 victory.
TCU Horned Frogs
If it wasn’t for a bad stretch in the middle of the season, the TCU Horned Frogs might have made the NCAA Tournament. But they didn’t and they have made the most of the opportunity they were given in this NIT.
The Horned Frogs path to get to this point in the tournament wasn’t a cakewalk but they could have had it much worse. They had to play Fresno State, Iowa, Richmond and UCF.
They had the most problem with Iowa which shouldn’t be any surprise as they were the one seed. It took overtime to finally beat them 94-92.
Against UCF in the semifinals the Horned Frogs were led by big man Vladimir Brodziansky. He had 18 points and 5 rebounds to pace TCU.
For TCU to win this game they need to deploy the same strategy they did against UCF.
Georgia Tech like UCF is a very good defensive team and the Horned Frogs will have to overcome that to win the championship.
Free Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. TCU Horned Frogs NCAAB Prediction:
I really like the TCU Horned Frogs in this game. They have been playing their best basketball of the season and they have shown against UCF that they can attack a stingy defense.
4* Free NIT Betting Pick: GT ATS
Although the Horned Frogs win this game I think the Yellow Jackets will keep it close all game and this game will be decided in the final minutes.
