As announced on Sunday night, BYU will host the Washington Huskies in a first-round NIT game. The third-seeded Cougars are not only looking to leave a positive mark on the 2013 season, but they have their focus set on winning the NIT as a whole.
But is that a realistic goal? They will have to face the likes of Baylor and Florida State, who demolished BYU earlier in the season, along with near-misses on the national tourney like Kentucky and Virginia. It will sure be tough, but only time will tell if Dave Rose and his squad can pull it off.
So, what do the Cougars need to do to get to Madison Square Garden and maybe even leave victorious? Here is a complete blueprint.
