    LE could have 18 wins going into the conference tourney

    Southern Miss is 16-10 and has two games left against teams with 20 wins and two teams with losing records. They are in sixth place in a twelve team conference. Will they be in the NIT? They are in Conference USA with Memphis and UTEP.

    Re: LE could have 18 wins going into the conference tourney

    They probably need to finish top 4 to get into the NIT. Their non-conference is pretty lackluster.

    It's good to see Larry rally the troops after the rough start they had in conference play.

    Probably no NIT for LE. Conference USA will have 2-3 max in the NCAA tourney this year. And only 32 teams make the NIT, so I doubt the conference could get 3 additional teams in the NIT.

    Additionally, 2 of Larry's wins came against non Division 1 teams. So. Miss would have to win 3 of their last 4 and win a couple in the tourney to have a shot IMO.

    Re: LE could have 18 wins going into the conference tourney

    Even with an NIT appearance this year, makes it (5) years at the helm with only the NIT - seems like a pretty mediocre coaching record to me.
    I wonder if the AD still thinks he got a steal by hiring a former AP COY.

    I still blame Bruce Van De Velde for firing LE and getting us into this mess.

    I blame JP for pulling the trigger way too early on Morgan, without a chance to correct any perceived issues JP though might have existed.

    You do realize it was CUSA, with two non-div 1 teams on schedule right? I guess if we include his last (3) at ISU, that makes eight years with one NIT post-season appearance.,

    Yup, even Gary Thompson wanted to give Larry a second chance....but the last 2 AD's, (post Gene Smith), can't handle having an ego bigger than their own in this program....

    Yeah, USM is a basketball powerhouse with recent a recent visit to the elite 8

    He really ran that program into the ground.

    Re: LE could have 18 wins going into the conference tourney

    Some might say taking Southern Miss to a tournament - any tournament - in 5 years is actually a decent rebuilding job.
