Notre Dame basketball misses out on NCAA Tournament

Due to Notre Dame's seed - and as long as they keep winning - the Irish will play their first 3 NIT games at home, as the first three rounds of the NIT tournament are played on the home court of the higher seeded teams.

Among the intriguing Round of 64 matchups will be eighth-seeded Creighton against ninth-seeded Kansas State, with Bluejays star Marcus Foster going up against his former team, and upstart Davidson (No. 12) facing off with Kentucky.

"Our team is very disappointed", Enfield said, per USA Today Sports.

Hampton earned an automatic bid to the NIT by virtue of their regular-season title in the Mideastern Athletic Conference (MEAC). The Irish won four of their final six games after senior forward Bonzie Colson, who led the team in scoring this season, returned from his injury.

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

"I told them I had two teams that handled it differently", Brey said. "I know we beat (the Orange) on their floor".

Unfortunately for the Notre Dame basketball team, Selection Sunday wasn't as kind to them this time around as in years past. "It's nearly kind of a fitting end to kind of how our season (went)". Nebraska, Louisville, USC, Saint Mary's, etc. are all really good squads. The Gaels were ranked 20th in the country when they fell to BYU on Monday in the semifinals of the West Coast Conference tournament, ending a 28-5 season in disappointment.

Should Notre Dame continue to earn victories in the tournament, they would host the second round (March 16 -19) and quarterfinals (March 20 & 21) at Purcell Pavilion before heading to Madison Square Garden for the semifinals (March 27) and final (March 29).

Saint Mary's may be the most unexpected omission from this year's tournament. The NIT will run through March 29, with its semifinals and championship game taking place at Madison Square Garden in NY.
