NIT Tournament 2012 Bracket: Seton Hall Loses, Season Over

The Seton Hall Pirates were eliminated from the 2012 NIT Tournament on Saturday, after suffering a double digit loss to the Massachusetts Minutemen. The Minutemen, who are the fifth seed in their region, upset the Pirates, who entered the tournament as the region's first seed.

UMass now awaits the winner of Sunday's second round match-up between the Drexel Dragons and the Northern Iowa Panthers. Against Drexel, who is a three seed, UMass would be the underdog. Against Nortern Iowa, who is the region's seven seed, UMass would act as favorites.

Having knocked off higher seeds in both of their match ups, the Minutemen are only three wins away from winning the 2012 NIT Tournament.
