Temple to face Penn State in NIT

5 Teams That Got Screwed By The NCAA Tournament Selection Committee

During the NIT Selection Show on Sunday night, the Irish (20-14) learned they will play the No. 8 seeded Hampton Pirates at home in the first round.

The Eagles, who made a step forward this season after going 19-15 this season and advancing to the ACC tournament quarterfinals, were selected as a No. 5 seed. The Midwest could be in for some fireworks, with three of college basketball's longtime powers-Kansas (No. 1), Duke (No. 2) and Michigan State (No. 3)-landing in the region. The higher seeded team in the first three rounds hosts each matchup before the tournament moves to Madison Square Garden for the semis and finals.

During the preseason, the Irish defeated Wichita State, who earned a No. 4 seed in the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Baylor, Notre Dame, Saint Mary's (California) and Southern California highlight the 32-team National Invitation Tournament field released today.

The Atlantic Coast Conference was once again one of the toughest in the nation throughout the 2017-2018 season, as evident in the nine NCAA Tournament bids it received this year.

The Nittany Lions lost, 78-70, to Purdue University in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament on Saturday.

The victor of the Irish and Pirates will face the victor of No. 4 seed Penn State (21-13, 9-9) and No. 5 seed Temple (17-15, 8-10).

Temple will visit Penn State in an opening round NIT game, Wednesday at 8 p.m. (ESPNU).

Marquette (19-13, 9-9) is the No. 2 seed in Notre Dame's quadrant of the tournament.

Penn State's last win in the series came in a 66-60 victory on December 9, 2001. "I think we'll fight, we'll compete, we'll scrap and we'll win a couple at the tournament". The losses that mounted as a result of those injuries were ultimately what kept Notre Dame out of the Big Dance and instead playing in the NIT.
