The Deacs are the 2 seed in the “Bottom Right Bracket” and will play the Towson Tigers in the first round in the Joel. The Tigers finished the season 25-8 overall and 15-3 in the CAA. They lost in the semifinals of the CAA conference tournament 56-69 to Delaware. That game will take place on Wednesday at 7pm on ESPN+.
Should the Deacs defeat the Tigers, they will play the winner of Princeton-VCU back home at the Joel on Saturday or Sunday of this week. You can see the full bracket below.
I know the NIT is not where we wanted to be, but the Deacs are in it, so they may as well win it. Go Deacs!
