La Salle Gets NIT Invite For First Post Season Berth In 20 Years

La Salle's consistent play over the entire season was probably the key factor in the Explorer's first postseason invitation in 20 years as the NIT came calling on Sunday night.  La Salle was one of only three teams across the country to never lose a game by double figures.  Wins over NCAA tournament participants Xavier and St.Bonaventure along with three total wins over NIT tournament participants UMass and Bucknell helped pave the way to the Explorers not only getting the NIT bid, but also securing a 3 seed and getting a nationally-televised home game against Big 10 member Minnesota.  The game will be broadcast on ESPN2 on Wednesday night at 7pm.
