Brownell led his team to 10 ACC wins this season

The Clemson fan base has had a bitter sentiment the last several days after the Tigers' stunning 88-85 overtime loss against the Yellow Jackets in the second round of the ACC tournament.

It was not losing to a similarly skilled Georgia Tech team (19-13) that crushed diehard Clemson fans but the complete collapse of being up 18 points with 8:30 to go and not finding a way to win.

However, not is all lost for the seniors on the team, fans, etc. because the latest NIT projections have Clemson securing a place in the field of 32 teams.

Clemson is projected as a #5 seed facing off against #4 seed Hofstra according to bracketmatrix.com. Other ACC schools in their NIT projections included Florida State (#1 seed), Georgia Tech (#2 seed) and Virginia Tech (#6 seed).

The Tigers were also predicted as a #5 seed in the NIT according to drating.com. Other ACC schools in their NIT projections included Georgia Tech (#2 seed), Syracuse (#2 seed), Florida State (#3 seed) and Virginia Tech (#3 seed).

Belmont, Bucknell, High Point, Hofstra, IPFW, Monmouth, North Florida, Valparaiso and Wagner have automatic bids to the NIT since they were regular season champions in their respective conferences.

2016 NIT Schedule

1st, 2nd, Quarterfinals - March 15-23 at Campus sites
Semifinals - March 29 at Madison Square Garden, NYC
Finals - March 31 at Madison Square Garden, NYC
