    I think we would pretty much have to win out and win at least on in the Big 12 Tournament.

    Would have to win out and win 2 in the B12.

    Why is it sad? We lose our top 3 guards going into the year, have been in most games, are getting great effort out of some walk-ons, and it's a sad year?

    I for one am very happy with what this team has done. I am very excited for next year.

    Too bad Jim isn't wearing ISU's colors. This almost is fitting for this thread. To bad he's not a basketball coach.

    Nope. :( The Big 12 tourney is our super bowl this year. Atleast there's still slight hope for the CBI.

    Idk about that CBI its never mentioned in any games plus i havent seen much online its a private tourney owned by buisness men. Id still think you would need a better conference record to get into any post season

    Why not play Lucca? The CBI is not run/sanctioned by the NCAA.

    That would be hilarious! Even if they wouldn't let us, play him anyway! Who cares if we have to forfeit?

    To answer the original question, no shot this season.

    I think ISU will be have to improve a ton to have a chance at the NIT next season and I do not see that happening. If my scenario is correct, this would be 4 straight seasons of no post season play for ISU, including the first 3 under McDermott. This is not good.
