The Huskies have opened as the second-biggest favorites in the opening round of the College Basketball Invitational. The biggest favorite is Virginia, 13 1/2- point favorites over Richmond in one of the CBI openers tonight.
If form holds, the Huskies will advance to host Nevada on Monday at Hec Ed. The Wolf Pack is a three point favorite at home tonight against Houston.
The Post-Tribune story includes a nice quote -- echoing what some of the Huskies had to say -- from Valpo coach Homer Drew: "There are only 113 teams still playing out of 341 in Division I, so it's an honor just to be playing. Maybe we don't have our dancing shoes on, but we've still got our tennis shoes on."
