Wisconsin starts its the conference tourney tonight against Indiana. They finished 2nd in the Big10. They would have won it but they lost too many games especially near the end of the season. Actually I'm shocked they ended up with the #2 seed with all the games lost recently.

Ohio State basketball does not receive an invitation to the NIT

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Thad Matta said after Ohio State basketball was bounced from the Big Ten Tournament by Rutgers that he wasn't sure if the Buckeyes would accept a bid to the National Invitation Tournament.

Turns out he didn't need to make a decision.

The Buckeyes were not invited to take part in the NIT this year after finishing 17-15.

Asked which two teams were on the outside of the 32-team field, NIT chairman Reggie Minton listed Ohio State and UNC-Asheville.

"Both of those teams were tough decisions for us," Minton said on ESPNU. "They were worthy, but when we matched them up against the other resumes, we just felt they came a little short."

Minton added that no teams turned down an NIT invitation this year.

An OSU spokesperson told cleveland.com that Ohio State would have accepted a bid had the Buckeyes been invited.

Ohio State signed a non-binding agreement in January to take part in the NIT if invited, according to Adam Jardy of the Columbus Dispatch. Under that agreement, Ohio State could still reject an NIT bid if invited, but cannot play in other postseason tournaments such as the CIT or the CBI. A team that signs a non-binding NIT agreement can still play in the NCAA Tournament if selected.

So Ohio State's season will end at 17-15 with no postseason play. The Buckeyes went 2-5 in their last seven games.

The last time Ohio State didn't participate in a postseason tournament was 2004-05, its first season under Matta when it wasn't eligible for postseason play.
