The first couple of games of the College Basketball Invitational are in the books, with Old Dominion beating Rider and Virginia edging Richmond.
I got to watch most of the Virginia game, and it was a pretty entertaining one, going down to the final possession with the Cavs winning, 66-64. I didn’t hear official attendance, but whatever I could see on TV appeared to be pretty full.
Starting in a few minutes — 6 p.m. — will be the game that more immediate affects UW: Houston at Nevada. If the Huskies win tomorrow against Valparaiso, the winner of the Houston-Nevada game will come to Hec Ed on Monday.
The games are on Fox Sports Channel — not FSN — and that means only on some cable and dish sports tiers.
The UW game tomorrow also will be taped and shown on FSN on a delayed basis: 11 p.m. Wednesday.
