Head coach Brad Brownell's Tigers were not invited to the NIT
Head coach Brad Brownell's Tigers were not invited to the NIT

The 32 teams selected to play in the National Invitation Tournament were revealed Sunday evening, and Clemson was not one of those teams. The Tigers will likely not accept a bid to another postseason tournament if offered and will miss the postseason for the second consecutive year.

Clemson has made the NIT 15 times, the last time in 2014. That K.J. McDaniels-led team defeated Georgia St., Illinois and Belmont – all at Littlejohn Coliseum – before losing to SMU in the semifinals at Madison Square Garden.

The Tigers finished the season by losing four of the final five games, including blowing an 18-point lead to Georgia Tech in the ACC Tournament last Wednesday. Five consecutive wins in ACC play (Florida St., Syracuse, Louisville, Duke and Miami) had the Tigers poised for a big season, but the Tigers lost eight of the last 13 in the conference, dropping the team’s RPI to 128th in the NCAA, just ahead of Wake Forest and Boston College in the ACC.

Clemson finishes the season with a 17-14 record. The Tigers will miss the postseason for the fourth time in six years under Brad Brownell.
