NIT predictions 2022: Our picks for the men’s bracket


Recommended Posts

Bottom left region

Oklahoma is the highest rated team in KenPom’s efficiency rankings to miss the NCAA tournament. The Sooners finished just 18-15 in head coach Porter Moser’s first year, but there’s plenty of talent here led by guard Jordan Goldwire and center Tanner Groves. We’ll take Oklahoma over Missouri State, setting up a matchup with Colorado, who we’ll pick to defeat Saint Bonaventure. Give me the Buffs over Oklahoma in the second round.

We’ll pick Virginia to beat Mississippi State on the bottom half of the bracket, and then go with Texas State over North Texas. UVA will beat Texas State to set up a matchup with Colorado.

Did you really think we’d pick against Tony Bennett? The Hoos are our pick to make the Final Four in the NIT.

Top right region

SMU lost a heartbreaker to Memphis in the AAC tournament and didn’t get an at-large bid despite finishing 23-8 overall and 13-4 in conference. With a star guard in senior Kendric Davis, the Mustangs should advance easily past Nicholls in their first game. We’ll take Washington State — powered by a long, athletic, and young front line of Efe Abogidi and Mouhamed Gueye — over Santa Clara. SMU over Wazzu in the second round.

Saint Louis has a brilliant point guard in Yuri Collins — who is No. 3 in the nation in assist rate. The Billikens should have enough to get past MVC star A.J. Green and Northern Iowa. We’ll take BYU over Long Beach State, and then expect Saint Louis to knock off BYU.

Give me SMU over Saint Louis to reach the Final Four. The Ponies just have so much experience with five senior starters and should have enough perimeter defense to advance to MSG.

I think he sees that we have a "low scoring offense" and thinks we can't hang with a middy like Texas State.
