Wright State is guaranteed an NIT bid at least. Under the new rules and new ownership of the NIT (which, is essentially, the NCAA) if the winner of the season conference does not win its conference tournament, they play in the NIT.
I honestly think that Butler still could get in the NCAA just because of the November to remember.
They probably will, but a loss in their last regular season game and a quick out in the Horizon tournament and they could get cut. That would be a 2-5 finish, and it's hard for a mid-major to survive that.
Love the rule about conference winners getting NIT bids. I always thought it was unfair that a small school could be outstanding in their conference season, slip up in their title game and not get invited anywhere. Personally I don't think a conference that can play a true round robin schedule should even have a tournament, but I know they're not going to go away because of the money involved.
