Just a few hours after the Seton Hall Pirates were left out of the NCAA Tournament's 68-team field, the Pirates earned a No. 1 seed in the NIT Tournament, which released its bracket and schedule Sunday night. Seton Hall will host No. 8 Stony Brook Seawolves at Walsh Gymnasium on Tuesday (7:15 p.m.). With a victory they would advance to the second round to play either No. 4 Mississippi St. Bulldogs or No. 5 UMass Minutemen.
The three other No. 1 seeds in the NIT Tournament are: Washington Huskies, Arizona Wildcats and Tennessee Volunteers. The five-round, single-elimination event will hold its Final Four at Madison Square Garden in New York, March 27-29.
