Basketball players from the Bronx square off in NIT Final Four

While there are no Bronx players left in the NCAA tournament, there are three still alive in the postseason NIT.

Rutgers and Juel Wiggan took on Curtis Stinson and Iowa State in a semi-final game. The Scarlet Knights were up 40-30 at halftime but Stinson brought back Iowa State in the second half. With the game tied at 66, Stinson draws a foul, which eventually leads his team to tie the score at 69. Then Stinson goes coast to coast and gives Iowa State a 2-point lead. But Wiggan, who didn't score a point for the Scarlet Knights, sets up the winning basket giving Rutgers the 84-81 win.

Rutgers will now play Michigan in the finals.
