Behind the scenes of the NCAA Tournament there was some CIT and NIT action yesterday as well, including a matchup of two programs that like to run and play offense (and haven’t known this type of winning for awhile).
Illinois St. left out of the field completely. Monmouth not even considered. Princeton needing an automatic bid. Wichita St. a 10 seed. Thanks to the NCAA Tournament selection committee’s focus on RPI derivatives (not even the metric itself) the accomplishments by mid-majors are consistently undervalued.

If you’re reading this, it’s extremely likely you are a member of the choir and have been singing with us for a few years (and we thank you), but it feels like this is a good time to appreciate what Monmouth has accomplished this season. The Hawks finished the 2016-17 regular season at 26-5, winning […]
Monmouth defeated Siena 77-73 before a sellout home crowd for the Hawks’ 25th win of the season on Friday night. Justin Robinson scored 20 points, including six in the final minutes, to clinch the game for Monmouth. Two other seniors, Je’lon Hornbeak and Collin Stewart added 13 points apiece.
