The Santa Clara Broncos (21-11) are National Invitation Tournament (NIT) bound for the first time since 1989!
The Broncos will travel to Pullman, Washington to play the Washington State Cougars (19-14) of the PAC-12. This matchup is in the “Top Right” portion of the bracket and Washington State is the No. 4 seed.
The game will be on Tuesday, March 15. Tipoff is scheduled for 10:00 PM (Central Time) and will be nationally televised on ESPNU.
Santa Clara is 3-4 all-time against the Cougars.
This is a huge step in the right direction for the program that hasn’t been to the NCAA Tournament since 1996 and as mentioned above, first time in the NIT since 1989. The NIT is not a bad consolation.
