Latest NIT-ology includes Huskies

There’s a general feeling at UW that the win at Cal Saturday went a long way toward securing a post-season bid of some sort, as it assured the Huskies will finish the regular season with at least a .500 record.
And the latest from NIT-ology appears to give some evidence to that assertion as it includes the Huskies, giving them a No. 7 seed in the bracket of 32 teams.
Here’s a link to the proposed bracket.
Interesting to note as well that NIT-ology supposes that seven Pac-10 teams will get NCAA bids, including Oregon.
The wildcard aspect to the NIT is that the tournament must take regular-season conference champions that don’t get into the NCAA tournament, which was one of the factors in keeping the Huskies out last season.
But UW officials feel more confident about chances at getting into the NIT this year due to the strength of the Pac-10 and what is apparently going to be a bit more of a push by the conference to get their teams in the secondary tournaments.
But if UW is left out of the NIT, there is a third alternative this year in the new CBI. The CBI will include 16 teams and while it says it will compete for the NIT for schools, seems more likely it will get the next 16 after the NIT picks its field.
Still, it means 16 more post-season opportunities, and much greater of a chance for the Huskies to get into something this year.
