Davidson to play St. Mary's in NIT

Davidson (27-7) will face St. Mary's (27-6) in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament.

The second-seeded Gaels beat Washington State 68-57 late Tuesday night in Moraga, Calif., hours after the Wildcats had upset South Carolina 70-63 in Columbia.

Davidson will travel to Moraga - which is near San Francisco - for the game. It will be played Monday at 11:30 p.m. (EST), and televised on ESPN2.

St. Mary's is led by guard Patty Mills, who scored 27 points against Washington State. Diamon Simpson added 18 and 12 rebounds.

Playing an away game on the West coast is hard enough -- jet lag being a factor -- so why would the game be scheduled at 8:30pm pacific, making the Davidson team play at what their body clocks think is 11:0pm? That seems grossly unfair.

It's called TV, someone has to pay for Davidson to play. You do what the suits tell you to do.
