The Final NCAA Tournament Projections For Notre Dame

The Final NCAA Tournament Projections For Notre Dame

The University of Notre Dame men's basketball team, confirmed by the 2018 NCAA Championship selection committee as the the final team eliminated from consideration for the NCAA tournament, has been designated as one of four number-one seeds in the 2018 National Invitation Tournament.

After starting Big Ten play 3-5, the team out of Death Valley won their third meeting with the Ohio State Buckeyes, made an appearance in the 2018 Big Ten Tournament semifinals and came within single digits of beating both Purdue and MI. The Nittany Lions have not earned an NCAA Tournament berth under seventh-year head coach Pat Chambers, and last appeared in the NIT in 2009, going 5-0 to win the tournament. The NIT second-round will feature the victor of the Penn State-Temple game against the victor of Tuesday's Notre Dame-Hampton contest.

Penn State wasn't invited to the Big Dance - but the Nittany Lions are headed toward the next best thing.

USC will play UNC Asheville on Tuesday night in its first appearance in the NIT since 1999.

Of that group, Alabama, Texas, Syracuse and UCLA made the field of 68 - with the latter two programs, Saint Bonaventure and Arizona State composing the tournament's "Last Four In".

USC, Notre Dame highlight many notable NIT matchups
The NIT will run through March 29, with its semifinals and championship game taking place at Madison Square Garden in NY . However, the team lost to BYU, 85-72, in the semifinals of the West Coast Conference tournament.

Just how close were the Irish (20-14) to getting into the NCAA tournament? The team was plagued with inconsistent play throughout the season. But Notre Dame adjusted, shutting down the Nittany Lions for the rest of the game and eventually outshooting Penn State 47-45.

The Owls have had an up and down season, beating Auburn, Clemson, South Carolina and Wichita State, but losing to George Washington and UConn.

Vermont (27-7) at Middle Tennessee (24-7), 8 p.m.

Notre Dame is 14-3 all-time at Purcell Pavilion in the NIT. Lungaro doesn't mention the 71-70 setback just before Christmas to Rider, which finished 22-9 overall. It was Jenkins' third goal of the season and his first in 23 games, his first since scoring against Penn State Nov. 10. Temple is also 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine Wednesday games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven non-conference games.
