I also agree. And it wasn’t just you who didn’t expect us to make the tournament. Prior to the season I looked at a lot of previews and there were more national media writers who projected us to miss the tournament than those who thought we would make it. I can recall at least one site that predicted us to miss the NIT as well.
I too hope that we can build on this and start building back up our program’s national reputation by putting together a streak of tournament appearances.
Yes it is a sucess but getting at least one win in the Dance would help the players coming back next year.
The talent level is increasing on the team.
The hogs should be ranked in the top 25 by mid season next year.
There is a trend that has changed. In the past we could build a lead and melt late game by turning the ball over and missing free throws that’s not the case anymore.
Some of the players responsible for this turn around are coming back next year!
The incoming class will be called upon to play and be productive.
