Lacking The Big Dance, Some Jersey Schools Still Leverage Postseason for Future Success

Lacking The Big Dance, Some Jersey Schools Still Leverage Postseason for Future Success
BY JOE FAVORITO
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

It certainly wasn’t a stellar year for Division I basketball in The Garden State. No men’s or women’s programs made the NCAA’s, but in the parity-filled world of college basketball these days, the “other” tournaments, the WNIT and one of the newer men’s post-season events, the College Basketball Invitational, did prove beneficial for the women’s programs at Rutgers and Seton Hall, and men’s hoops at Princeton, all of which were able to extend their seasons, gain experience, and add some additional time on before putting the balls away for the year.

Now the world of the Haves and the Have Nots in college athletics ebbs and flows in any given year, and this time of year the hope for Cinderella trying on the glass slipper in March Madness is what keeps fans up at night. However this year, perhaps more than ever, Cinderella seems to have gone home early, as only Dayton from the Atlantic 10 remains in The Elite 8 as the lone survivor not tied to major college football.
