(The only positive association I have with the NIT is THE Perry Stevenson dunk of 2009)
Well, Kentucky earned an overall #1 seed after all. Just in the wrong tournament. Kentucky will be the #1 seed in the NIT tournament. Kentucky will play AT the #8 seed Robert Morris (Pittsburgh) on Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN. That’s a 3,000 person gym for those keeping count at home. Road trip? Not all of us though.
Southern Miss, Alabama and Virginia were the other #1 seeds. That group is also called your “first four out.”
