Irish Earn Top Seed In Postseason NIT

UConn back as women's top seed

The Hampton University men's basketball team learned of its National Invitation Tournament opponent on Sunday night and found the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame for its opening round opponent.

Louisville, Marquette, Oklahoma State and Utah will be No. 2 seeds for the 32-team event. While it prepares for the Bulldogs, UCLA and Arizona State are headed for the NCAA Tournament despite finishing below the Trojans in the Pac-12 standings.

"If all that matters is the quality of your best win or two on your schedule, then we shouldn't even play and just set the field in December after the out of conference was complete", he said. The Irish also had a strong case for a spot in the NCAA tourney after preseason All-American Bonzie Colson returned from a broken left foot. "He's done a fantastic job at Harvard and we know that they're really good, and so it's going to be a very hard game". "We were very realistic about how this could go given where we were today with our resume and the whole bit". "It's nearly kind of a fitting end to kind of how our season (went)".

Saint Mary's may be the most unexpected omission from this year's tournament. The Gaels were ranked 20th in the country when they fell to BYU on Monday in the semifinals of the West Coast Conference tournament, ending a 28-5 season in disappointment. Exact dates of the second round and quarterfinal games will be announced at a later date.

This is Hampton's first-ever NIT Tournament appearance.
