Tennessee State to host College Insider Tournament, absorb costs

Tennessee State had a good season, and they aren’t ready to let it end yet. TSU has accepted a bid to the College Insider Tournament, but unlike the other three HBCUs in the tournament, they’ve decided host a game.

TSU (20-10) will host Ball State on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Ironically, Ball State turned down the opportunity to host a first round game due to the cost. His team could end up hosting a later round game if they win, though.

“If you host a game, you have to guarantee a certain level of money,” Ball State athletic director Mark Sandy told The Star Press. “You could break even if you have a great crowd, but based on our normal attendance, we’d probably lose money, a little bit.”
