We didn’t make it to the NCAA tournament this year, but there’s always the NIT.

Penn State (22-11) is all but guaranteed a high seed in the National Invitation Tournament. That field will be officially announced at 9 p.m. [Centre Daily Times]

We’ll let you know what’s going on as soon as we can on here and on Twitter.

The game between the Nitts and GMU, who went deep into the NCAAs a few years back, will be held March 17th at 8 PM at the BJC, so don’t put away your spirit and enthusiasm just yet. For those that don’t have tickets, the game will be broadcast on ESPNU. The full NIT bracket can be found here.
