NCAA Tournament Snubs 2018: Who Didn't Make the Cut?

NCAA Tournament Snubs 2018: Who Didn't Make the Cut?

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.

Now, I happen to agree with Mike Brey that the Irish could have been a top 20 team with a healthy Bonzie Colson and Matt Farrell leading them.

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. "This was the most rewarding championship I think we've had", McGraw said last month.

"I'm kind of proud of them and hurting for them at the same time". How again does the committee select Syracuse over Notre Dame when the two had identical 8-10 ACC records with the road win minus their best two players in their favor? Tops for the Irish in that one was Bonzie Colson with 18 points.

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.

A potential Notre Dame-Oklahoma State championship game would be pretty fun. To make matters worse, Rhode Island lost in the A-10 tournament championship, which gave an automatic bid to a Davidson team that was not otherwise being considered and made one less at-large bid available, which Rhode Island received. "I know we beat (the Orange) on their floor".

In the thirteen games prior to the 2018 MEAC Tournament, Jermaine Morrow averaged twenty-two points and six rebounds. Due to Notre Dame's seed - and as long as they keep winning - the Irish will play their first 3 NIT games at home, as the first three rounds of the NIT tournament are played on the home court of the higher seeded teams.

Baylor (18-14) and Saint Mary's (28-5) round out the No. 1 seeds.

First round play is scheduled for Tuesday, March 13 and Wednesday, March 14, with the second round running March 16-19.

The defending champion Gamecocks were victims of the injury bug this season - they lost guards Lindsey Spann and Bianca Cuevas-Moore to season-ending knee injuries - and dropped games against Louisville, Mississippi State, UConn, Tennessee and Missouri.

Notre Dame and Louisville didn't make the cut.
