Notre Dame Basketball: Irish will be a 1-seed in the NIT

Notre Dame Basketball: Irish will be a 1-seed in the NIT

A dominant first half helped Penn State women's lacrosse cruise past Albany 17-7 Sunday afternoon in NY.

The Atlantic Coast Conference was once again one of the toughest in the nation throughout the 2017-2018 season, as evident in the nine NCAA Tournament bids it received this year.

As such, the only way Notre Dame can win a tournament championship is if they win the NIT. The Nittany Lions defeated Northwestern and Ohio State in conference tournament competition before falling to Purdue one win shy of the championship game.

Temple will visit Penn State in an opening round NIT game, Wednesday at 8 p.m. (ESPNU).

Penn State (21-13, 9-9 Big Ten Conference) finished the season with a 14-4 record at home, including a 79-56 victory against Ohio State University on February 15.

The following year, the deal was annulled by the United Nations Security Council after the North conducted a nuclear weapon test. The United States would prefer Washington, while North Korea will want Trump to come to Pyongyang, its capital.

Maria Auth's five-point game helped the Nittany Lions improve to 4-3, while the Great Danes remained winless on the season.

"We've watched other bubble teams and I'm watching very closely over the last 24 hours and I just think we're a better team", he told the Big Ten Network on Thursday. The Owls won the tournament in 1938 and 1969. "We are excited about the tournament and we think it will be as competitive a field as we've ever had".

"Like every year, this was an extremely challenging process but we are extremely excited about the field we were able to put together", said Reggie Minton, chair of the NIT Selection Committee. The Nittany Lions scored in bursts, with a six-goal run in the first half and a seven-goal barrage sandwiched around halftime.

Led by guard Tony Carr, the Big Ten's leading scorer (19.9 points per game), Penn State will be considered a top NIT contender. The Nittany Lions reached the quarterfinals of the College Basketball Invitational in 2014 following a 16-18 record.
