New post-season tourney planned

Interesting story today about yet another post-season tournament that will begin this season, and will take 16 teams after those selected for the NCAA Tournament and the NIT.
Here’s the story.
So this means that 112 teams will now make post-season of some kind, and would obviously have meant the Huskies would have had somewhere to go last season.
In fact, Andy Katz wrote today that Washington was among the schools the organizers of this tournament approached, asking if they would have played in it if it were available last year.
According to Katz, 15 of the 16 schools asked (including UW) said they would have gladly played in such a tournament last season.
So if you’re a big-name school and you just get a winning record, there’s probably a post-season berth of some sort waiting this year.
