6th place is as many followers of the NEC expected. Donyell has improved the team in his two seasons here - so let's see what year 3 brings.

Qualifying for the NEC Tournament is a requirement.
Securing a HOME game is not beyond reasonable hopes.
Winning a QF game is practically expected this year.
Playing in the NEC Finals would be a huge achievement.

A real accomplishment for the program would be the POSTSEASON - NCAA, NIT, CBI, CIT

Unless things have changed an NIT invite would probably require a 1st place regular NEC season and an elimination in the NEC tournament.
But yes, that would be a giant step forward for the program, certainly the next best thing to going to the NCAA's. The other two C tournaments I could care less about.

Can't we get an NIT by simply winning a ton of games? I know, I know, God forbid we win anything that's not an NEC game.

Man o man football's got me testy! lol.

Maybe that applies to a higher profile team Hoops but I do know that the NIT has granted a spot for regular season conference champs that did NOT win the conference tournament.

If CCSU has a 20 game season but fails both “tests”, I’m sure the NIT would favor a Big 10 or SEC team that did the same in their respective conferences.

Agreed. We only have two ways into a free tourney in the NEC.
