Utah-Saint Mary’s preview
The Saint Mary’s Gaels, the top-ranked seed in Utah’s bracket, are 18-1 at home this season. Saint Mary’s was one of the biggest snubs from the NCAA Tournament.
Utah guard Sedrick Barefield scored 17 points in the win over LSU and will be a key factor against the Gaels on Wednesday night. He was one of five players who scored at least 12 points apiece for the Utes on Monday as the team put up a 95 points on 58 percent shooting.
The Gaels are led by Randy Bennett, one of the most underrated coaches in the country. The Utes will have their hands full with a very talented team led by junior center Jock Landale and freshman guard Jordan Ford.
This should be one of the best games of the NIT and with a trip to New York City on the line, both teams should be at their best.
