The ole NIT first round is done and in the end I went 11-5, which is not bad.
To put it bluntly the NIT first round was a round for the favorites. The better seed won 14 of the 16 games. Davidson, URI and Miami were the only squads to win on the road and Miami was a higher seed that needed to go roadtrippin thanks to scheduling conflicts. Because of that there's really nothing to talk about. The Hokies needed double OT to beat Duquesne so their run to the championship might be a bit in question. Billy Gillespie would probably like to win the tourney so maybe he doesn't get shit canned. Davidson is playing St. Mary's next which could be entertaining. But in the end the majority of the 2nd round games are going on at the same time as NCAA games, so its highly doubtful you'll be tuning in.
