Notre Dame vs. Hampton - 3/13/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Irish will instead be a #1 seed in the NIT and host Hampton in the 1st round Tuesday at 9pm. However, the team lost to BYU, 85-72, in the semifinals of the West Coast Conference tournament.

"If all that matters is the quality of your best win or two on your schedule, then we shouldn't even play and just set the field in December after the out-of-conference (action) was complete", Enfield said. As for Notre Dame, they should do well in the NIT after they get over the disappointment of being left out of the main tournament.

USC has won six of eight heading into Tuesday night's game against UNC Asheville in its first NIT appearance since 1999.

Notre Dame's bubble finally burst on Sunday night when the official NCAA Tournament brackets were revealed.

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. 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. Matt Farrell is next averaging 16.8 points and over five assists per game. Winning three of their last five, the Irish beat tournament bound Virginia Tech and came within five points of beating Virginia. "We were very realistic about how this could go given where we were today with our resume and the whole bit". "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". It tops the field with 26 victories in the tournament.

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".

There are some other really fun possible matchups, too. Golden Eagles Coach Steve Wojciechowski played college ball at Duke while Crimson coach and former Blue Devils guard Tommy Amaker was an assistant to Mike Krzyzewski.
