Notre Dame expresses disappointment in NCAA Tournament snub

Notre Dame expresses disappointment in NCAA Tournament snub

Notre Dame is also 1-4 ATS in their last five Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five non-conference games. Only three of the teams in the 2018 field appeared in the NIT in 2017.

Who's excited for the NCAA Tournament?

USC, Notre Dame, Baylor and Saint Mary's grabbed No. 1 seeds for the National Invitation Tournament after their NCAA bubble burst, and Louisville, Oklahoma State, Middle Tennessee and OR joined them in the 32-team field. Notre Dame beat Syracuse at Syracuse without Bonzie Colson or Matt Farrell and both teams finished 8-10 in the ACC.

"I am absolutely thrilled that we played our way into the field, given where we were in January and early February". I have prepared them for the NIT the last month, [so] we've been very realistic about how this could go.

Coach Mike Brey called it a "fitting" chapter to Notre Dame's frustrating season. "I'm heartbroken, but it wasn't unexpected once I saw Davidson win today", Brey said Sunday.

Robinson reportedly set to join Bears
Blake Bortles and he connected on just 50.7 percent of those targets, but they did amount to 2,283 yards and 20 touchdowns. The Bears have tendered restricted free agent WR Cameron Meredith at the original-round level.

The chairman of the NCAA Selection Committee Bruce Rasmussen said Notre Dame was in the NCAA field of 68 until Davidson won and stole a spot.

The Irish's resume included wins over Florida State, Wichita State and North Carolina State, but they lost to Ball State, Indiana and suffered an ugly loss to Michigan State. "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".

Other first round games include Temple at Penn State, Rider at Oregon, Harvard at Marquette, Nebraska at Mississippi State, Vermont at Middle Tennessee, Northern Kentucky at Louisville, Boston College at Western Kentucky, BYU at Stanford, FGCU at Oklahoma State, Boise State at Washington, Louisiana at LSU, UC Davis at Utah.

"We held a team meeting and discussed where we wanted to take the future of this team", senior forward Martinas Geben said. They really weren't interested, it was really a tough end to a season. "The NIT was never the goal - nobody wants to play in it - but since we're in it, we're going to try and make the most out of it and win the whole thing". Playing their best basketball late in the season, the Pirates could cause the Irish some problems in the first round of the NIT.
