I can't find a thread about us and the NIT. Were we not invited? Did we not want to go?
I think it would have been good for the team/program to have some post-season beyond the Big 12 tournament.
It doesn't seem like we are "above" it, considering that North Carolina, Connecticut, and Illinois are in it. There is only one Big 12 team (Texas Tech), plenty of lesser teams (Troy, Coastal Carolina, Jacksonville), and some New England teams apparently to draw a regional crowd.
I seem to remember something around the end of the Wayne Morgan era when we made clear that we didn't want to go. Perhaps we are still paying for that posture.
