  • Gonzaga celebrates after winning the West Coast Conference tournament

Not receiving an NCAA bid was another blow for the Cardinals, but Mahmoud said they're focusing on trying to win another tournament, albeit one with a lower profile than the Big Dance.

Wagner (23-9) at Baylor (18-14), 4 p.m. (The Broncos are unable to host the game due to a scheduling conflict at Taco Bell Arena).

"We've worked hard all year to get to postseason", Quinndary Weatherspoon said.

All-time, Mississippi State is 7-8 with its best finish a semi-final run to New York City in 2007 that ended on a buzzer-beating loss to West Virginia, 63-62. That's when the ESPN projections added the Huskers as the very last team in the NCAA Tournament. If they win, the Bears will host the victor of Mississippi State and Nebraska. UW won 72-57 in 1999.

"(Teams like Nebraska, St. Mary's, and Middle Tennessee) played some great non-conference games, they just didn't win those games". The other two pairings in this section of the bracket include Hampton at Notre Dame and Temple at Penn State.

The Pac-12 has 5 teams in the NIT field. "I know we're all excited about this opportunity".

"We've been clear all along we're going to wait until the season wraps up, and then we'll talk about it", Tyra said Monday.

Louisville players feel like they were snubbed from the NCAA Tournament after they went 20-13 and beat some quality opponents, and they apparently do not want to compete for the NIT title as a consolation prize. The 32-team bracket is split into four groups of eight seeded No. 1 through No. 8.

Background: The odds are certainly stacked against the Broncs, who were always going to be underdogs before the NIT selection committee opted to send them across the country for a first-round game on Tuesday night.

In this preview, I will give a general overview and notes about the NIT, highlight some of the favorites to cut down the nets in Madison Square Garden, and analyze some sleeper teams and key players to watch. The game will be televised on ESPN3 and broadcast on KOMO 1000AM/FM 97.7. Overall this year, MSU is 22-11, it's most wins since having 21 in 2012.

Additionally the three point line will be extended to match the distance used by FIBA for global competition and the free throw lane will be widened to be consistent with the width used by the National Basketball Association. Teams will shoot two free throws beginning with the fifth foul of each quarter. Same with the 30-second shot clock which was also much needed.
