According to YardBarker, “Colorado State, Memphis, Saint Louis and Ole Miss have accepted their NIT invitations and are the top four seeds in this year’s bracket”

The Athletic reports: “16 teams will be represented in this season’s NIT All games will be played in the Dallas-Fort Worth area starting Wednesday For the first time since 1976, Duke and Kentucky were not selected for the men’s NCAA tournament ”

We thank the NCAA and NIT selection boards for their review this year We believe it is in the best interests of the men’s basketball program to decline entry into a non-NCAA postseason tournament for 2020-21

Our men’s basketball student-athletes, coaches, and support staff have made many sacrifices to safely battle for a BIG EAST championship and NCAA tournament offering during this COVID-19 pandemic It’s been six months of semi-isolation, constant testing, additional travel barriers, and following many guidelines and protocols, in addition to hard work on the basketball court and in the classroom

The physical and mental health of our sports students is of the utmost importance Instead of traveling to Texas and getting into another bubble, we believe that the next steps for these handsome young men are to break away from the long season and focus. If you’ve finished the semester strong, prepare for it before either graduating and starting a professional career or competing for a conference championship and NCAA offer again in 2021-22

In the end, Duke, Louisville, Xavier, St Johns and Seton Hall all rejected the NIT https: // tco / f9K09u4rPV
