How about U.C., U.K., and Ohio State in the N.I.T.?

I don't think it's over for U.C., but they better win the final 2 in the regular season and at least 2 to 3 games in the Big East tournament. Even then, it's no lock. I know it was on the road at Syracuse where they had the meltdown, and the mighty "committee" frowns more on home losses than those on the road, but a loss like this is brutal. Down 23 at halftime, 33 in the second half, that's the kind of blasting and lasting impression that is hard to shake at this point in the season. I will say this: there are about a million teams with similar resumes. Maybe some years they should just cut the field to 32 and get on with it.
