Irish miss out on NCAA tournament, will play Hampton in NIT

Irish miss out on NCAA tournament, will play Hampton in NIT

However, through it all the most powerful message Notre Dame presented in the unenviable position of having to answer questions after such an enormous disappointment was that they still had plenty to play for.

A month ago, Mike Brey said if his team squinted, it could see the bubble.

Colson, this year's ACC preseason player of the year returned with a vengeance after missing 15 games with a broken foot, and Farrell was out five games with an ankle injury.

The final "reveal" issued by the NCAA selection committee had UConn has the tournament's top overall seed and the top seed in the Albany Region, followed by Mississippi State in Kansas City, Louisville in Lexington and Notre Dame in Spokane.

"I'm kind of proud of them and hurting for them at the same time".

Notre Dame (20-14) lost 88-70 to Duke in the ACC quarterfinals on Thursday. If Notre Dame wins, they will take on either Penn State or Temple in the 2nd round.




Should the Irish win its first three games in the tournament, they will play in the NIT Final Four in Madison Square Garden on March 27th and 29th.

No fewer than a dozen of the 68 teams in the tournament have been named either in the FBI investigation or in media reports that allege coaches and others have directed payments and improper benefits to recruits and players - thus, breaking rules that go to the core of the amateur-sports code that defines and regulates both the NCAA and the "student-athletes" who make this billion-dollar business run. "I know we beat (the Orange) on their floor".

USC has won six of eight heading into Tuesday night's game against UNC Asheville in its first NIT appearance since 1999. The first round starts on Tuesday.

Notre Dame's 2nd biggest star Matt Farrell also missed five games during the regular season making the Irish a unique case on the bubble as they are now healthy compared to the majority of the 2nd half of the season.

Baylor (18-14) and Saint Mary's (28-5) round out the No. 1 seeds. Still, I think Hampton has the offense to keep up here so I'm leaning that way. Unfortunately, without him, they lost to teams like Georgia Tech amid a seven-game losing streak. The losses that mounted as a result of those injuries were ultimately what kept Notre Dame out of the Big Dance and instead playing in the NIT.
