OF HILLTOPPERS AND WILDCATS. Cold Spring Shops, your one-stop first stop for obscure sports news. Tonight ... the women's National Invitational Tournament, which takes place at the home courts of participating teams. Funnily, two teams with the home court are the finalists. Former North Star Conference member Marquette, now of the Big East, won the Big East consolation game, defeating Pitt. The location of the home court for the final game is now known, with Kansas State, coached by onetime drinking buddy Deb Patterson, defeating Western Kentucky by one in overtime. (No, they did not go scoreless in regulation.) The tournament final is this Friday at 7 pm, in Manhattan.
