The loss to Robert Morris in their tiny gym was as attributable to a bad Atheltic Administration decision as much as anything in my opinion. Traditionally more highly respected teams get home court advantage in the NIT tournament. UK’s administration claimed “not enough man-power to host the NIT due to their hosting the NCAA”. I have great respect for UK’s Athletics Director, Mitch Barnhart, who kindly considered to a wonderful interview story in my “Acquaintances With Integrity II” book (2011).
I am only a spoiled old UK basketball fan, but that is my humble opinion of this opening game NIT tourney loss. This UK team was young and relatively inexperienced, but the adminstration, including the coaches, could have thought a little harder about the venue.
