  • The Collegian: Fresno State not good enough for postseason play?

    The lasting memory of the 2018-19 Fresno State men's basketball season likely will be an 85-60 loss to Utah State in Las Vegas at the Mountain West Conference Tournament. Though it shouldn't be the final memory to a great season, ultimately it will be.

    The loss is surely what popped into the heads of committee members of the National Invitation Tournament committee (NIT) as it chose to snub a 23-9 Bulldogs team, denying it the chance to continue its season.

    Along with the NIT snub, the Bulldogs were denied an opportunity to play in the College Basketball Invitation (CBI) and the CollegeInsider.
