Kudos to the ADs at Purdue, Indiana, Butler, and Notre Dame for getting together and working out a way to have a big 4 tourney... called the Crossroads Classic the next two years. The fact that its 3 different conferences adds to the appeal probably(for those of you who hearken back to the days that there used to be such a tourney in North Carolina way back when). Should be a fun event.
Thanks for passing this along. It should be a great pre-conference season tournament: fun to watch and a real early season "growth test" for four potentially excellent teams. Further, it may help return Indiana (both the state and especially the team) to its traditional basketball stature.
