Oklahoma State Will Take on Florida Gulf Coast in the 2018 NIT

Oklahoma State Will Take on Florida Gulf Coast in the 2018 NIT

Oklahoma State was not selected, and the Cowboys will likely be headed for the National Invitation Tournament.

There was one sigh of relief making the bracket, and then nearly the same type of excitement learning OU would not be headed to Dayton for the First Four games. "It's the NCAA Tournament".

The NIT berth is OSU's 40th postseason appearance in either the NIT or NCAA Tournament.

For seventh-seeded Rhode Island, the trip to Pittsburgh is a return to the site where the Rams won the Atlantic 10 Tournament last season to clinch a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1999. "Me, personally, I have a tremendous chip on our shoulder". "That is how I'm going to look at it".

"I think we're good enough", said Baylor senior guard Manu Lecomte following Thursday's 78-65 loss to West Virginia in the Big 12 tournament quarterfinals. The Cowboys became the first team to sweep both regular season games against Kansas in Jayhawks coach Bill Self's 15 seasons. He is shooting right around 41 percent from the field and almost 33 percent from behind the arc. Oklahoma went just 3-11 from that point forward with opponents figuring out how better to manage Young and being successful in taking away the rest of OU's options and exploiting the Sooners' defensive woes. I'll be ready to play. That will be our main emphasis: "controlling him".

Florida Gulf Coast in no stranger to post-season play and although they came out flat defensively in the A-Sun Championship, the Eagles are still a very good team that had been led by their offense which ranks 30th in scoring offense and 13th in FG%. OSU has been to Madison Square Garden four times and have a 3-5 NIT record in the building. Which one was most-deserving of a bid? Rider has an offense that averages 81.7 points per game and that should be enough to allow it to compete with OR tonight. Also, the Eagles got a big lift from Michael Gilmore after he had to sit out the first half of the season after transferring from Miami, as he led the team in rebounds.

If the Sooners win that game, they will play Saturday against the victor of the Duke-Iona game. They dealt with concussions to numerous players and had a couple of nagging injuries, keeping guys like Christian Carlyle and Antravious Simmons out of a couple of games.

Kruger will be guiding a team to the NCAA Tournament for the 18th time in his career - the 10th most among active head coaches. A nice run in the NIT will only add to the positive momentum Cowboy basketball has generated the last few months.

"We're a team that got so married to making shots that when we didn't make shots at a high clip that really affected everything else", Kruger said.
