Irish Earn Top Seed In Postseason NIT

Gq2xlyndjhdlq1uae1wb

After three days of speculation about whether or not the Irish would get the benefit of the doubt from the committee now that they are nearly back to full strength, we found out Bonzie Colson and Matt Farrell would not get one more chance to lead the Irish on a tournament run.

If only they had more time.

Baylor, Notre Dame, Saint Mary's, and USC were the final four teams to be left out of the field for the 2018 NCAA Tournament, which was revealed Sunday. First up is a matchup against on against No. 8-seed Hampton on Tuesday at 9 p.m. Matt Farrell is next averaging 16.8 points and over five assists per game.

"Our guys, after a season of gut punches, that was another gut punch today", Coach Mike Brey said. Notre Dame is also 1-4 ATS in their last five Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five non-conference games.

Other notable matchups include Marquette taking on Harvard on Wednesday night, and Louisville hosting Northern Kentucky on Tuesday night.

Colson is a New Bedford native who played his high school ball at St. Andrew's in Barrington, Rhode Island, where he was twice named the state's Player of the Year, an honor New Bedford's Brycen Goodine earned this season.

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 victor will face either Penn State or Temple in the second round.

"We're very disappointed. Our players deserve to be in the NCAA Tournament", Enfield said. "Bonzie and I expressed a really strong interest in continuing to play and competing". Still, I think Hampton has the offense to keep up here so I'm leaning that way.

Notre Dame is making its 12th appearance in the NIT and first since the end of the 2009 season. Unfortunately, without him, they lost to teams like Georgia Tech amid a seven-game losing streak.

"I told them I had two teams that handled it differently", Brey said. Playing their best basketball late in the season, the Pirates could cause the Irish some problems in the first round of the NIT. Last year, Notre Dame advanced to the second round before running up against West Virginia.
