The NCAA and CBS decided to stretch out the drama of revealing the tournament bracket into a two-hour production. Unfortunately, the 120 minutes dedicated to reading a 68-team list was undercut by the official bracket leaking online and spreading like wildfire.
As the tournament committee investigates to find who leaked the highly anticipated document and how, the folks announcing the NIT tournament on ESPNU decided to poke a little fun at the more illustrious tourney.
Of course, the NCAA can easily get the last laugh here by pointing out that LSU and Ben Simmons would rather not play basketball anymore this year than play in the secondary tournament.
