Because you can't spell North Carolina without N, I, and T.

State finished below Carolina in the ACC and they made it. Plus they have a good RPI.

It's the name. They got a tough one tomorrow night against William and Mary. Should be a GREAT match up. I'll be sure to look for it on ESPN deportes 5.

Stony Brook won the America East Regular Season Championship and the new rule in the NIT is that if you win the Regular Season but not the Conference Tourny you get an auto bid to the NIT.

why wouldnt they? The only requirement is to be .500

They are tied for third most National Championships, 2nd team to 2,000 wins, 3rd most wins of all time, most ACC Regular Season Championships, 2nd most ACC Tournament Championships, tied with most Final Four Appearances, and 3rd most NCAA appearances

Its all about the money, and UNC is a big draw

UNC actually played a tough schedule this year. People forget that.

Actually we have the most. One of UCLA's was vacated.

Don't forget we're also the only team with 100 tourney wins, the most valuable basketball program and sell more merchandise than any other program. To my knowledge we're the only team in history to go to the NIT without a winning record. Everything mentioned above, especially the last two I stated, is the reason.

With that said, I really wish we would've turned down the NIT bid. This season just needs to end.

Let me phase it another way: how many better teams out there are more deserving? 10? 20? 50?
