NCAA snubs USC, Notre Dame among NIT field

NCAA snubs USC, Notre Dame among NIT field

The first round will take place on March 13 and 14; the second round will be played March 15-19; the quarterfinals will be March 20 and 21.

But it was not to be. Perhaps not enough diversity of wins, something coach Pat Chambers doesn't agree with.

Penn State finished 9-9 in the Big Ten Conference and advanced to the Big Ten Tournament semifinals for its best season since the 2010-11 campaign as it enters the NIT.

"I told them to be upset now, be disappointed now, but in a couple hours that's over with", Chambers added.

The field is made up of the 32 best teams that failed to make the 2018 NCAA Tournament; the bracket was revealed after the NCAA Tournament Selection Show.

-Jones breaks his own Big Ten Tournament record of 118 saves during the 2017 tournament as he finishes the 2018 tournament with 121 saves. "It should be easy to get them ready to play".

The return to the NIT marks the first time Penn State has played in the tournament since winning it in 2009 with a victory over Baylor.

Temple will visit Penn State in an opening round NIT game, Wednesday at 8 p.m. (ESPNU). The Nittany Lions don't expect big man Mike Watkins back from injury during the tournament. The two assists also tie him with junior Andrew Sturtz (Buffalo, N.Y.) for third all-time at Penn State and his 58 career points are now just two shy of Luke Juha '16 for the most all-time by a Nittany Lion defenseman. "We are excited about the tournament and we think it will be as competitive a field as we've ever had".

And as far as history?
