The NCAA Tournament wasn't the only postseason tournament to tip-off on Tuesday, as the 2013 CollegeInsider.com Tournament also began first-round play. While it doesn't have the reputation of the Big Dance, NIT or even CBI, there's still a trophy to be handed out and teams that want it.

Let's recap Tuesday's action:

Anthony Miles scored 23 points, Daniel Stewart grabbed eight rebounds and the Broncos made 51.2 percent of their field goals to roll over Hartford.

East Carolina Pirates 66, Savannah St. Tigers 65

Miguel Paul made two free-throws with 13 seconds left to complete a huge rally for the Pirates, who trailed by as many as nine points in the second half. Maurice Kemp led with 21 points and Robert Sampson got 14 rebounds to lead ECU.
