NIT and CBI action all over the place.
National Invitation Tournament
Maryland 68 Minnesota 58
Maryland finally righted the ship and won on the road at Minnesota. Not that this says much but Minnesota did knock off Indiana in the Big Ten Tournament. Next up for Maryland is Syracuse in a battle of coaches who perpetually sit on the NCAA bubble and whine for tournament expansion to save them the trouble of actually scheduling a tough non-conference slate.
Akron 65 FSU 60 (OT)
Way to represent the conference FSU. Akron is actually a pretty decent team but that did not stop FSU assistant football coach from whining to the media that Akron won because they take non-qualifiers on their football team.
College Basketball Invitational
Virginia 66 Richmond 64
The only thing you can be sure of here is that Sean Singletary appreciates the opportunity to pad his career stats at UVa by participating in this tournament.
