Anyone know when the bracket is determined? 8 PM on ESPN? Think that's when it came out last year.

We have a chance at least. Doubt any team in the NIT has two wins bigger than our two.

Edit- just saw the above post, thanks.

I will watch the show and keep my fingers crossed but I do not believe it will happen. We have an RPI of 96, finished tied for last in our conference and were two games under five hundred against D1 competition. Despite our obvious merits this trifecta will be hard for the selectors to overlook.

Yeah not surprised we didn't make it. If we got another win or two I think we'd made it... but losing 3/4 and then going 1-1 in the BET wasn't enough.

Although I wanted to get in, the NIT is still a joke of a tournament. I did not care about it one bit the two times we made it with Lavin as coach. It would've been cool, but no big deal not making it.

Can't wait until the NCAAs end and we can get on to next year.

LSU would have been one of the closer comparisons but we needed couple more conference wins

I was surprised to see Temple in there. Not a great season by them 17-15 and below five hundred in conference 8-10.
