I get the case to be made for Seton Hall as the Pirates have a defense that can potentially control the tempo of this game. However, while Seton Hall was viewed as a tournament snub by a lot of folks, Indiana State was THE snub of the NCAA tournament field. And I said coming into the tournament, snubs going into the NIT have one of two approaches. They drown in their own misery and get bounced early like they’re not even happy to be there, or they come out like a bat out of hell with a chip on their shoulder to prove to the NCAA tournament committee that they got it wrong, and Indiana State’s done the latter by a mile here. This Sycamores team has come out with a point to prove in every game of the NIT up to this point, and I think the Sycamores finish the story. It’s scary because the bulk of the Sycamores’ top talent including Robbie Avila are all underclassmen, so if the Sycamores choose to run it back, they can be as good if not better than this year’s team. Either way, I think the Sycamores grab the win and hoist the NIT trophy. Give me Indiana State here.

Chris’s Pick Indiana State Sycamores: -150
