NIT 2012 Bracket: Pitt Misses NIT, Too

The full NIT bracket is out, and Pitt didn't make it there, in addition to not making the NCAA Tournament. Robert Morris also will not be participating in the NIT.

Robert Morris' absence isn't a huge surprise, but the fact that Pitt isn't there is at least a modest one. The Panthers had a miserable season, with a 17-16 record and a 5-13 Big East performance, and their only really big wins came against Georgetown and West Virginia. But their strong schedule should have helped.

Here's the full bracket.

1. Washington vs. 8. Texas-Arlington
4. Northwestern vs. 5. Akron
3. Oregon vs. 6. LSU
2. Dayton vs. 7. Iowa

1. Tennessee vs. 8. Savannah State
4. Middle Tennessee vs. 5. Marshall
3. La Salle vs. 6. Minnesota
2. Miami (FL) vs. 7. Valparaiso

1. Seton Hall vs. 8. Stony Brook
4. Mississippi State vs. 5. UMass
3. Drexel vs. 6. UCF
2. St. Joseph's vs. 7. UNI

1. Arizona vs. 8. Bucknell
4. Oral Roberts vs. 5. Nevada
3. Stanford vs. 6. Cleveland State
2. Ole Miss vs. 7. Illinois State

The first round will take place March 13 and 14.
