BYU and Texas switched seeds so that BYU doesn't play on Sundays.
NIT Seed List:
It's my first NIT bracket of the year so the standard disclaimer: I'm much, much, much better at trying to predict the NCAA bracket than the NIT bracket. Regular readers know this well. Also, seed lines 6-8 are vulnerable since regular season conference champions who don't go the NCAA tournament get an automatic bid here.
So here we go.
1 - St. Joseph's, Washington, Minnesota, Illinois
2 - South Florida, Colorado State, Dayton, Central Florida
3 - Drexel, South Dakota State, Oregon, Arkansas
4 - Marshall, LSU, Wyoming, Colorado
5 - Northern Iowa, La Salle, Wagner, New Mexico State
6 - Massachusetts, Stanford, Cleveland State, UCLA
7 - Mississippi, Missouri State, Tennessee, Virginia Tech
8 - Maryland, Loyola Marymount, Ohio, Pittsburgh
Here's the NIT bracket (yep, there are principles and procedures to making a NIT bracket too!).
