rico Posted July 9, 2018 Report Share Posted July 9, 2018 I was curious about our NIT championship year and starting doing some research on the 78-79 season. That year in the Big 10, 7 of the 10 schools appeared in the Top 20 at some point in time. The conference was loaded. We finished 5th. There was a 3 way tie for 1st with MSU, Iowa, and Purdue. All at 13-5. OSU was 4th at 12-6. Then us at 10-8. Even though they expanded the NCAAT to 40 that year. They only selected MSU and Iowa. Purdue got hosed. The NIT field consisted of 24 teams. One thing I had forgotten about is that OSU reached the FF of the NIT as well as us and the Boilers. The oddest thing I found was that Northwestern went 2-16 that year but spanked eventual NCAA champ MSU by 18. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
