MBB UPDATE. Harvard Basketball will play Marquette in the first round of the NIT. Two former Dukies in Amaker and Wojciechowski



NIT even in its new format always shameless about working the story lines to attract viewers.

Would anybody ever watch the NIT unless they put together interesting story lines.
Penn State vs Temple is a nice idea.

I don't think Georgetown v. Princeton in 1999 was an accident either.

Any word on Towns' injury? I hope it's not serious; if you guys are going to do any major damage in the NIT, you're going to need that kid. He is one tough cover.

That's too bad. You guys may have to lean on Bassey a bit more. I was surprised at his offensive skill set. I hadn't seen enough of him to realize he was much more than a defensive stopper-type.

Really? He's the best all around player in the League. Guy has an NBA jump shot and can shoot over anyone. It would be a real shame if he has an injury that would carry over to next year.

Are you talking about Towns or Bassey? My comment was that it looked as if Bassey's role would have to expand a bit in Towns' absence.

Oh, if you look at the pronoun progression, it looked as if you were talking about Towns.

I didn't really get that. First comment, "That's too bad" referred to Towns. The next sentence referred specifically to Bassey and his skill set, and a possible expansion of his role.

If you read the prior message to which you were responding, "he" was Towns. But I understand your point and was mistaken.

No blood, no foul. It's just that I do take pride in my ability to write clearly.

Speaking of Towns, any word on his injury?

Good luck to Harvard. We know you will represent the IL well.

Just no flow offensively without Seth.

How much do you think the rule changes (wider foul lane, deeper three point line, four 10 minute quarters) are affecting the team?

I'm watching, and it looks as if Lewis in particular has never been able to get comfortable on the low block. He's about a foot farther out than he probably wants to be.

But yes, the entire team looks out of sorts.

Lewis is rushing things and starting further from the basket. As for the rest of the squad, playing without Towns and Aiken plus rule changes will do that.

A healthy Towns would've won this game.

Aint over yet. Harvard really putting on the screws defensively.

If not for some missed FTs in the past few minutes, this could be a 1 possession game.
