New Bedford's Bonzie Colson II and Notre Dame aren't going dancing

Connecticut head coach Geno Auriemma gestures to his team during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against South Florida in the American Athletic Conference tournament finals in Uncasville Conn. U

But for right now, while we can split hairs about it, the decision to leave Notre Dame out of the tournament painfully makes sense.

Coming into his senior season, Colson was named the ACC Preseason Player of the Year, the Blue Ribbons Preseason National Player of the Year and Preseason All-American by the Associated Press, Sports Illustrated, the Sporting News and The Athletic.

Notre Dame played the majority of its ACC season without pre-season All American Bonzie Colson who had surgery on his foot in January and missed 15 games before returning for the final two games of the regular season and the ACC Tournament.

Davidson's win Sunday over Rhode Island in the Atlantic 10 conference championship game is what knocked Notre Dame out of making the NCAA Tournament.

Be that as it may, the Irish - when as healthy as they appear to be right now - are one of the better teams in the country and will likely be considered a strong favorite to win the NIT by both the national media and the oddsmakers in Las Vegas.

"I love Tommy Amaker", Wojciechowski said.

Over on the Notre Dame side, they're sitting at 20-14 on the year.

"It's kind of a fitting end to how our season went", Brey said.

Colson and the Irish reached the Elite Eight in his first two collegiate seasons, falling to No. 1 Kentucky in 2015 and No. 1 North Carolina in 2016.

A potential Notre Dame-Oklahoma State championship game would be pretty fun. "I know we beat (the Orange) on their floor". They improved to 101-0 all time in AAC play with a victory over South Florida in the conference championship game Tuesday night at Mohegan Sun Arena.

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".

The Irish will instead be a #1 seed in the NIT and host Hampton in the 1st round Tuesday at 9pm.

The Pirates blew their shot at an NCAA Tournament berth this season. Still, I think Hampton has the offense to keep up here so I'm leaning that way. "I had a team that was really devastated it didn't get in [in 2005] and they lost to Holy Cross here". 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.
