The 2018 NIT Bracket Has Been Released

The 2018 NIT Bracket Has Been Released

Notre Dame, Oregon, and Rider are among the teams that fill out Penn State's corner of the field. The Nittany Lions are one of seven former NIT Champions in the 2018 field.

Penn State has still not made an NCAA Tournament under seventh-year coach Pat Chambers.

TCU won last year's NIT. The first round will take place on March 13 and 14; the second round will be played March 15-19; the quarterfinals will be March 20 and 21.

Penn State will not be repeating as Big Ten champions in men's hockey. The Nittany Lions have just two seniors, Shep Garner and Julian Moore, on their 2017-18 roster.

Notre Dame is making its 12th appearance in the NIT and first since the end of the 2009 season.

The NIT first-round contest will air on ESPNU, the Penn State Sports Network and GoPSUsports.com. "(This season) has been about our goaltending, our defensive core and our forwards with timely scoring and that's exactly what it was tonight, a combination of those three things that allowed us to win the game".

With the win the Fighting Irish move on to next Saturday's Big Ten Tournament Championship game where they will face the victor of the Ohio State vs. MI game while Penn State will await a possible at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament during the selection show next Sunday. "In general, the Big Ten didn't get much respect".

Temple beat Tulane, 82-77 in a first-round American Athletic Conference game before losing to Wichita State, 89-81.

Ticket information for Wednesday's NIT first round game has been distributed to season ticket holders and will be posted on GoPSUsports.com and on Penn State Athletics' social media channels.
