Selections are Sunday night.  Does anyone know if we will have a home game?   I think they go off on fan support and attendance if i am not mistaken

If going by location, we could play Toledo, Cinci or Dayton!  If we go 2 vs 7, we could end up playing Wisconsin!

The NIT is still a good consolation after a disappointing ending. Itís the equivalent of playing in a minor bowl in FBS-teams with name recognition not really playing for anything. No Madison Square Garden ending this year though-semiís and finals in Las Vegas for next three years.

One NIT projection has YSU in the Providence Region playing Pitt. Probably makes sense but we'll know for sure Sunday.

Pitt might be in the big dance. I've heard either Michigan, Dayton or Cincy.

Zero chance that YSU will host a home game.

Just watched a story ON CBS about Kennesaw State 1st ever appearance in the Ncaa tournament.   Just think they could have been us.  So close.

Does anybody know how many division one basketball teams have not made the NCAA tournament?  Are we like only one without an appearance?

Chicago St comes to mind but we have to be one of a few that hasn't made the dance.

I found it.  Just like 30 or so teams and we are one of the longest to be in Division 1 along with western Illinois.  The rest are programs that most recently joined div 1.  What a shame.

I counted 35 besides the transitional provisions schools of today like Bellarmine.

Fort Wayne is the only other school in our conference that hasn't made the dance...just two of us...and they have less time logged in division 1.  Wow.   I guess it's been long overdue
