What do you want to look for on the opening day of the NIT? We have you covered.

No. 8 Florida Gulf Coast at No. 1 Florida State, 7 p.m.

ESPN3

No. 5 Belmont at No. 4 Green Bay, 8:15 p.m.
No. 8 High Point at No. 1 Minnesota, 8:15 p.m.

What to Watch For:

The biggest game of the night for us is obviously Belmont at Green Bay, two teams we felt had some chance to get at-large bids to the NCAA Tournament. Based on the seeding, it looks like they weren't close, but were close in terms of each other. This should be a great game between a team of really good shooters (Belmont), and one that is an all-around matchup problem for a lot of mid-majors (Green Bay, except for when it plays Milwaukee).

We will also be looking to see how well the No. 1 seeds fare in their first games. Florida State, Minnesota and St. John's were considered bubble teams by at least a few bracketologists out there. Can they show that they were possibly unjustly left out?

Look for our previews for some of these games to run all day here at Mid-Major Madness.
