    So, do we even have a chance at the NIT?

    This team has proven they can play with almost anyone, so winning in KC is possible, but not probable. So, lets say the most likely circumstance happens and we lose to Mizzou, what are our chances of getting into the NIT with a 16-16 record???

    16-16, probably no chance at all.

    Win a couple of games in the Cyclone Invitational, and maybe we can really look at it.

    This team deserves it for being so close, but doesn't, because being close means we didn't seal the deal.

    I hope that we make our way in. If we do, I'm there. But the chances rest completely on making a run in the Invitational.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Make the finals next weekend and we could be in. Otherwise, no shot.

    Nope. Its either the CBI or NCAA if we make a tourney.

    With a 16-16 record I don't think we even get a look...

    Finish at 17-16 w/ a win in Kansas City next week and we at least get a look, but still don't make it...

    We needed to win today, followed by 2 in the Big 12's to get a peak. Didn't happen, so...no.

    Getting to the Big 12 title game might be good enough for NIT, but that has about as much odds as winning the entire thing.

    I think 2 wins in KC gets us a good shot at it. Otherwise, no. But this team has nothing to hang its head about. They built some positive momentum for the new start to the program, and made Freddie's first year a memorable one.

    Re: So, do we even have a chance at the NIT?

    Whether we make it anywhere or not, this was one of the most fun seasons of basketball I've seen in quite a while.

    It's frustrating in the sense that winning half of those 8 really close ones has us at 20 wins, but at the same time, we are far beyond what we were supposed to be.

    If only Diante had the chance to play with next year's team. That's the only real shame in it.

    .
    Agreed. If you just looked at our conference record, you might think id be unhappy with my first bb season ticket purchase (always had family tickets available during the mcdermott years and was in the band before that) but its quite the opposite, it was very much worth it, and i'll definitely be renewing, possibly increasing ticket numbers if its possible to do that without losing position too much.

    I wouldn't mind the Clones going to the CBI. If they could pull down 4 wins in the tourney, then CFH's first season at ISU would be a 20 win season!

    Short answer - no chance. Long answer - It's a run through the Big 12 tourney and an automatic bid or nothing at all. No shame in this season, though. An undermanned, undersized team playing just six scholly players in the rotation was competitive in all but about a half dozen games this year. I hope we all remember who laid the groundwork for success when next year's team wins 20 games and goes to the Big Dance.
