Stay up on the NIT with a look at scores, schedules and the bracket. No. 5 UW is two wins from a trip to New York City.
The first round of the National Invitation Tournament went basically chalk aside from No. 5 seed Washington beating No. 4 Boise State 77-74 at Alaska Airlines Arena on Wednesday night.
The higher-seeded Broncos were unable to host because Taco Bell Arena is the site of NCAA tournament first-round games.
In addition to UW, the home team won all 16 NIT openers.
Washington (21-12) faces No. 1 seed Saint Mary’s (29-5) 8 p.m. Monday at McKeon Pavilion in Moraga, Calif.
