In what  could be called a disappointing season, the defending national champions of the University of Kentucky fell to a team without much history, the Robert Morris Colonials, 59-57. Robert Morris had never won an NCAA Tournament game nor a NIT Game.

A team that played with heart and skill last year is now in the NBA, and what is left decided that their effort wasn’t worth a lesser championship. This is the first time fans have rushed the court in a first round NIT Game.

The good news? Help is on the way in the form of arguably the best recruiting class ever.
