Bracketology Predictions 2011: NIT Bracket Projections For Washington State

The Washington State Cougars are surely our of the NCAA Tournament discussion, but remain safely in the NIT. The Cougars saw any hopes of stealing an NCAA bid disappear in the quarterfinals of the Pac-10 Tournament with a loss to eventual champion Washington. While the rest of the college basketball world waits on pins and needles during the Selection Sunday show, the Cougars will have to wait a few more hours to find out where they’ll be playing in March during the NIT Selection Show.

Before then, we can get a better idea of where Washington State may end up by looking through the latest NIT bracketology projections.

The NIT Bracket Project: Washington State is a No. 3 seed in the NIT according to The Bracket Project. The Cougars are in UAB’s region, set to take-on Dayton in the first round. The projections are subject to change and have not been updated on Selection Sunday yet.

NITology: Washington State is a No. 2 seed in the latest NITology update. Instead of projecting matchups, NITology just predicts seed lines. Washington State joins UAB, Cleveland State and Harvard as No. 2 seeds, with Alabama, Georgia, Boston College and Missouri State taking the No. 1 seeds.

The NIT Selection Show gets underway following the NCAA Selection Sunday show, live on ESPNU. Stay with our bracketology StoryStream throughout the day for updates on the NIT and NCAA bracket projections. For more on the Cougars, head over to SB Nation’s CougCenter.
