Photos: Stanford Defeats Minnesota In NIT Championship Game
The Cardinal won in convincing fashion. We’ve got snapshots.
Amidst all of the excitement and pandemonium that accompanies Final Four weekend, it’s easy to forget that there’s another high-caliber college basketball tournament being played. Namely, the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). And last night, the Stanford Cardinal and Minnesota Golden Gophers faced off at Madison Square Garden for the NIT Championship. Both teams got off to a strong start, but Stanford turned up the defensive pressure, forcing 22 turnovers en route to a convincing 75-51 victory (you can check out the AP‘s full recap for more details). SLAM was present for the festivities, and snapped some exclusive photos along the way. Above are 25 pics from last night’s game, all shot by our man Jeff Dormeus. Special thanks to Jeff for the photos, and be sure to check out his website for more of his work.
