One thing to remember though- a team in South Carolina's position in the poll end of the year would never make the NIT, as the bottom 6-7 NIT teams are always conference champs from lower conferences that get an auto bid.

Man, people are really sleeping on South Carolina this year.

Ohio St checks in at #75. Got 17 champions in so 51 NCAA tourney teams to go along with 23 other NIT teams.

Right now in reality, the 9 teams they have projected for the NIT would not be in the NIT- as those teams would be bumped for the automatic teams from the smaller conferences that have to be in the NIT due to the rules that regular season conference champs have to go to the NIT if they don't win the conference tourney.

what if those regular season champs do win the conference tourney? then the 9 mentioned would get in to the NIT

yes. But realistically that's never happened...
2017- 8 auto teams that wouldn't have made NIT without that auto bid
2016- 10
2015- 10
2014- 9
2013- 8
2012- 5
2011- 11
so in the 7 years with the 68 team NCAA format, there's been 8.71 teams per year who made the NIT via auto bid(who wouldn't have made it otherwise).

Houston shows up at #74 and the 10th NIT team this year. (I was off, BYU was 9th NIT team).

So 22 more NIT teams and then 51 NCAA teams.

RE: College Basketball preview
St Joe's is in at #72. They are the 11th NIT team in the countdown. So about 3 weeks until we get the NCAA tourney teams showing up..... Of course I always say you take the last 8 left out and the 1st 8 in- and realistically they're about the same. 1-2 bounces goes either way will seal their fate.
