“The CIT is an outstanding event, which is run by outstanding people. Joe Dwyer, Angela Lento, Riley Wallace and the entire College Insider organization have always put the best interests of our game first. Each year they have strived to make the tournament better. The CIT is great for College Basketball.”
"Prior to accepting a bid I spoke with many coaches who had played in the CIT and they all raved about the quality of the people and the tournament. Participating in the CIT was great for our program. Riley Wallace, the entire selection committee and the staff at CollegeInsider.com was outstanding."

"Simply put -- this is great for college basketball. Since its inception CollegeInsider.com has done what is in the best interest of the game. They have always maintained a high level of integrity and have done so much to further promote so many programs. Creating a postseason tournament is just the latest example of their outstanding contributions to our sport."
“What an outstanding opportunity the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament provided the program and the University. Without question the Liberty basketball team got better as a result of participating in the CIT. The team gained a sense of confidence from being able to taste the postseason. It was a privilege to be part of such well-run, organized and fair event. Joe Dwyer and CollegeInsider.com have truly added great value to college basketball with the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament."
"CollegeInsider.com has always conducted business with college basketball's best interest at heart.

"It's great anytime student athletes and coaching staffs can continue their seasons. Roughly one-third of all division I college basketball programs are invited to participate in postseason. Compare that to other sports and it's obvious that a tournament like this will be a welcome addition to our sport. By creating this tournament, CollegeInsider.com is providing many deserving teams the opportunity to continue playing and that is always a good thing. This is a great idea by CollegeInsider.com."
