A horrific, inexplicable loss to the 286th-best team in the country abruptly ends Denver’s NCAA dreams, and imperils their NIT fallback plan as well. I personally think they will now miss the NIT. [UPDATE: John Templon, NIT-ologist extraordinaire, says Denver may yet make it into the NIT.]
I don’t understand how you go 18-0 against teams ranked below the RPI Top 100 all season, and then lose this one with everything on the line. (The Pios never led.) I don’t get it. I’m also too heartbroken to say more now. Ross will have a full recap later.
