12/2/2013 12:05 PM
Revenge was on the mind of upset-seeking Loras, but the story was the same one told in the classic. Loras goes into the break with a lead, but the Muhlenberg Mules flip a switch in the second half and pulled out victory. 89-77 in the Classic, 88-77 in the NT. 
Palm Beach Atlantic was able to avenge a close 65-62 loss in the Artie Classic with a big second half to propel them to a 76-66 victory and into the Quarterfinals of the Invitational.
Texas Tyler was able to continue their remarkable season behind National COY coachucla with a convincing 83-59 win over upset minded Centre, bettering their 73-60 mark from the Classic.
I am still a-choogling along in the NT East, facing top-seeded Dickinson in the Sweet 16 next.

Loras, Centre, Westfield State and Puget Sound's season all ended today. Ready to rest their bones after tourney runs, they know that they musn't rest long...for the proving ground of the Artie40 Preseason NIT looms only weeks away!

Artie, thanks for all you do to keep this an exciting non-conference tournament.
12/5/2013 9:13 PM
I have a lot of fun with it, and also I play in a high Sim AI conference so it's huge for my SOS and I believe it's improved my team each year.
12/6/2013 5:33 PM
It's too bad I can't put winning this tournament on my coaching resume!
12/13/2013 2:52 PM
Yeah, dvgagz, I wish!

We're back again with another round of the Allen D3 Preseason NIT, better known as the Artie Classic! The first round of games is killer, and this season's entire tournament is killer, if I must say so.

Round 1 matchups for tonight are as follows:
Dominican @ Methodist (-3)
#11 Loras (-12) @ Norwich
#15 Texas, Tyler @ #1 Puget Sound (-5)

Our tournament participant which is on a "bye" is Texas Lutheran, which hosts defending National Champion Dickinson tonight in what should be a great matchup.

Good luck all (except Methodist) See you tomorrow.
