Everyone agree that if you're going to go one-and-done, better to do so in the NCAA rather than the NIT.

Less obvious is a big run in the NIT against a one-and-done in the NCAA.

I was at the 1999 NIT quarterfinal between Princeton and Xavier. Princeton sure looked like they were having fun, whereas Penn got bounced (again) in the NCAA the previous week. It really would have been something if Princeton had won in Cincinnati to advance to New York, but they came up a bit short...

With the subsequent enlargement of the NCAA field, and the lower criteria for participating in the NIT, though, far better to have run the table in 1975. I am glad you enjoyed the Xavier game in '99, but....1975, at the mecca of eastern college hoops. That was the NIT tourney to follow!

I was in pre-school in 1975. :)

All that being said, even if Princeton somehow blows it in the Ivy tourney, chances are pretty good that the Tigers will still be playing a week after the Ivy NCAA rep (whoever that may be) gets bounced.

If not two weeks.

Blows it in the Ivy tourney? We have shown in the recent past we can blow it in the regular season, which is not over yet this year.
