2013 NIT Predictions

Hey, if you can't get in the NCAA Tournament, there is always the National Invitation Tournament. I always love to note that the NIT was once the higher tournament in terms of prestige, right up into the 1970's. Those were the days. Anyways, here are my predictions for the 2013 edition of the NIT, which kicks off on Tuesday night.
