They looked at who finished 6th and laughed. This is a pretty hard gut punch.

Gut punch? What exactly were you expecting?

These committees aren't stupid. They skipped right over UMASS as well.

You are right. I guess it's the upcoming bs from DP and/or BE....I can see it now...

"it was a hard year with covid. So much was asked of our guys and to finish 6th in this league is huge improvement and my wonderful AD thought as much also, thus the contract extension and raise. I just love Mason. Nobody understands a 10 year season like they do here. Watch us next year though. It will.be our best team I've had here"

Almost a decade since we upgraded to the A-10...where there is more opportunity for some MEANINGFUL post season.....heck 6 teams this year!

Maybe one day the jump will have been worth it. Im sure at this point there maybe some buyers remorse from the league since we were supposed to bolster the product.

But then again maybe they needed a "Fordham" south.

Maybe we can be a replacement team for the CBI tournament.

Louisville, Duke, Seton Hall, St. John's and Xavier were among the teams that opted out of consideration, but there are still some intriguing squads that will be taking the floor.

One plot twist for the NIT could the need for replacement teams due to COVID-19 protocols. Colorado State, Ole Miss and Saint Louis are among the four replacement teams for the NCAA Tournament and could need to vacate their spot in the NIT. Belmont, Furman, Marshall and UAB are among the potential replacement teams for the NIT.
