    Need at least 7 more to get into the NCAA. Not sure where those come from.

    I'd say at least 8 wins for the NCAA's, and beating a Missouri/Kansas on the road as a signature win.

    5-7 for sure, more than 7 for a shot at the NCAAs.

    need at least 9 more for ncaa, no way with our non-conference would we get in at any less than 10-6...NIT probably 5 maybe 6???

    I see maybe 4 we could be favored in. If KSU continues to be down, maybe we could sneak in a win against them.

    I think at least 8 more for NCAA. We need to finish above .500 in conference with our incredibly weak non-conference schedule.

    I have no idea with the NIT, especially with 3 more at larges in the NCAA this year. We have a great story line, which will help. I think 6 more gets us in for sure, 5 would put us on the bubble.

    Re: How many wins until a shot at the NIT, or *gulp* NCAA tourney?

    My guess is 6 wins if we do not loose big (like a 30 point blowout) for the NCAA. I base this on the fact the Big 12 will chew itself up this year. No one is totally dominant. We have ten decent teams in the league this year and KU is overrated.

    For NIT, I believe five wins may get us there since several Big 12 teams will go NCAA this year.

    Four wins may get us into a lesser tournament.

    18/19/20 win totals are needed for post season.

    I think you may be a little high for the NCAA. People love the Hoiberg story and might try to sneak us in just because of that. (Assuming we get probably 6 or 7 more wins.)

    Re: How many wins until a shot at the NIT, or *gulp* NCAA tourney?

    I'm trying not to think about this right now. At the beginning of the season, I would have been reasonably satisfied with a winning season of any kind.

    I'm not counting on postseason. I'd love to see a few more wins and an upset or two before it's over. Most importantly, I hope that the program has the same kind of momentum and buzz that they're seeing right now, postseason or not. If that is the case, this season will have been an unqualified success.

    I hope for the players that they do get into the postseason though, as I think they certainly deserve it.

    Re: How many wins until a shot at the NIT, or *gulp* NCAA tourney?

    Need to win-out at home and get at least one on the road or a Big 12 tournament win. If we can't win-out at home than a couple on the road. A win this week at OSU would make the path a lot easier for the NCAA's. NIT I think is 6 wins max to get in.

    Win on Wednesday, and the Big Dance needs to come into focus as being pretty realistic.

    Re: How many wins until a shot at the NIT, or *gulp* NCAA tourney?

    I would take any kind of postseason play for this young basketball team. Whatever results in more practices.

    That said, I would hope 5 more wins to get to 19 overall would get us some consideration for the NIT.

    What? Were not getting in because were a good story. Otherwise, Northwestern would have gotten in a long time ago.
