I’m surprised to see that.

The NIT Bracketologists had them in.... wonder if they turned it down?

 

Apparently some brackets had them out...  I was going off of Bracket Matrix and a few others:

Ah well.

Seat that much warmer for Turgeon.

They were in the First Four out, so they didn't decline the invitation.

 

Not a good look for Turgeon or the program. Yikes.

Good. No one cares anyway. NIT shouldn't even be a thing anymore. It was when a lot less teams went to the NCAAs.

 

Have a losers bracket tournament of teams eliminated from the real tournament on the Monday-Wednesdays when the NCAAs aren't on.

 

I'd watch that rather than watch best of the rest still bad teams in a tournament that doesn't matter. I'd rather watch UMBC (Assuming Kansas wins) play another game against Oklahoma or Rhode Island, something in that range.

I saw they were one of the first 2 teams out.

UMBC push them out of the tourney?

That's exactly what I was thinking in the other thread, UMBC might have got their revenge after losing to the Terps early in the season.

Not that big of a disappointment for me. I would have watched the games, but this season was rough.  Turgeon needs to take a good hard look at the program.

If Bruno and/or Jackson return for next year, things are going to be better, at least in terms of overall quality if not in terms of meeting expectations.

 

Turgeon's teams have rarely met expectations, I'd say only his first year and Melo's freshman year were seasons where the team met or exceeded expectations.  He's gotta do a better job of getting through to his guys and having a team that gets better over the course of the season rather than one that disappoints and fades late.

The field has already been set for the CBI, Terps not among them.

Just as well.....does the CBI even have a TV contract?

I feel bad for Cowan and Huerter, Bruno and a couple of others, but at this point all any of these 3 letter tourney's  would do is adda few empty wins.

Do you still have to pay to be in the CBI?  Was MD asked?
