    Unbelievable matchup tonight in the NIT.

    Stephen Curry and Davidson v. Patty Mills and St. Mary's in my own backyard, Moraga, CA. Game sold out in 29 mins. last week. General Admission seats selling for $100.

    Small gym (3,500) and it will be rocking.

    What a setting. And Spring has sprung, sunshine and blue skies.

    I only hope that since I bought into the hype (and overpaid) that the teams play fast and shoot well so that we get a close, exciting finish and prove that they should have been in the NCAA.

    St. Mary's has a beef about being in the tournament, Davidson does not. However, the Mills-Curry matchup should be a very fun one to watch.

    Is this going to be on TV? I didn't even know about it.

    Probably the only men's postseason match I'm interested in, mostly to see Curry.

    And of course, the two most exciting teams in the tournament are playing in the second round. That's right, the NCAA is even fucking over the mid-majors now in the NIT.

    I feel like I'm gonna say something really stupid, but am I the only one who didn't know that Steve Rossiter on Davidson is the brother of the really gangly looking kid on Siena?

    I will say this: I am not watching ESPN right now, only looking at the game box score. I imagine they've mentioned it numerous times on TV.

    I didn't know either, but I never paid attention either

    Is this an 82-foot court? Damn, it's claustrophobic.

    Mills, to me, is the much better pro prospect and he proved it when he had 20 points, four assists and zero turnovers when Australia played the US in Beijing. They may not have won, but that's impressive against guys like Paul and Williams.
