Tuesday's first round of the 2024 NIT Tournament provided upsets and exciting finishes, and more excitement is possibly on the way on Wednesday. The fun began when Ohio State stopped a late rally to defeat Cornell 88-83. Reigning NIT champion North Texas went on the road to defeat LSU, while Boston College also won on the road against Providence 62-57.

Even though Xavier star Desmond Claude scored a game-high 30 points, Georgia held on for a 78-76 victory. The Bulldogs led by as many as 23 points in the second half before the Musketeers closed it out down the stretch.

With Minnesota trailing Butler by one with less than five seconds left, Elijah Hawkins made a pair of free throws and helped his team put the game away at the other end to seal a 73-72 victory. Iowa eliminated Kansas State 91-82 at home thanks to 30 points from Payton Sandfort and USF advanced with an 83-77 victory over UCF.
