NIT Bracket: Complete Schedule, Teams And Matchups

The Irish boast a 26-10 lifetime record in the event (what was the original precursor to the NCAA Championship tournament) and advanced to the title game in 1973, 1984, 1992 and 2000.

But it was not to be.

The Nittany Lions will play in the National Invitational Tournament (NIT) beginning this week. Perhaps not enough diversity of wins, something coach Pat Chambers doesn't agree with. Sophomore guard Tony Carr was selected first-team All-Big Ten and USBWA All-District and to the Big Ten All-Tournament Team.

The full NIT bracket has been released. They host the Owls on Wednesday at 8 the Bryce Jordan Center on ESPNU.

Jack Jenkins scored the game winning goal with 30 seconds left as the Notre Dame hockey team defeated Penn State 3-2 Saturday night in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals in front of a great crowd at the Compton Family Ice Arena.

"Playing in the postseason provides us with an incredible opportunity for our team to continue to develop and get better", said Penn State coach Patrick Chambers, who has directed the Nittany Lions to 21 victories in 2017-18, the third-highest win total in program history.

Penn State played its final four games without its top big man, Mike Watkins. The two assists also tie him with junior Andrew Sturtz (Buffalo, N.Y.) for third all-time at Penn State and his 58 career points are now just two shy of Luke Juha '16 for the most all-time by a Nittany Lion defenseman. "Of course we wanted to play in the NCAA Tournament, but we want to play". "We are excited about the tournament and we think it will be as competitive a field as we've ever had".

Penn State last played in the NCAA Tournament in 2011.
