It’s pretty clear that the Friars will land in the NIT (barring some Selection Committee Miracle). While it’s a little disappointing, at least we can all have a stress-free Sunday. In the meantime, Friar fans now have to check out NITology.com to see where they stand in the NIT seedings. Hey, at least we are “solidly in” this one!
As of Saturday morning, PC is a #3 seed, along with New Mexico, Miami, and Baylor (who are stil alive in their conference tournament.).
First round would have the Friars playing #6 seed Niagra (26-8, 14-4 MAAC). I think the game would be at the Dunk on Wednesday. It’s a shame the last game PC’s senior class will ever play at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center will no longer be the upset of #1 Pitt, but oh well.
