The Vanderbilt Commodores are unlikely to make the NCAA Tournament when the field of 68 is announced on Sunday.
Vanderbilt (20-14) has been one of the hottest teams in college basketball over the final month of the season, which explains how they beat LSU and Kentucky this week en route to an unexpected tournament run.
But the Commodores’ 87-75 loss to Texas A&M on Saturday cements their position as a likely NIT team.
Vanderbilt is a team that no one would want to play in the NCAA Tournament next week, but the reality is that its resume just isn’t quite up to par with other at-large teams. As of Saturday, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has the Commodores as the No. 4 team out of the field.
The Commodores may have needed the automatic bid given to the winner of the SEC Tournament. Absent that, they may be on the wrong side of the bubble on Sunday.
