Hoyas decline bid as NIT announces field

NEW YORK (AP) - The Atlantic
10, which had only Xavier selected for
the NCAA tournament, had five teams
picked Sunday night for the NIT's
expanded 40-team field.
One name missing from the list was
Georgetown, which lost in the quarter-
finals of the Big East tournament and
finished 19-11.
Hoyas coach Craig Esherick said
Sunday night he just couldn't accept
the invitation because his team was
going to be sent on the road and he
didn't want his players missing classes.
"We wanted to play but didn't want

to play at all costs. We're in school
now," he said. "Last year we spent two
weeks out West and didn't want to do it
again."
The Hoyas .were in the West Region
of the NCAA Tournament last season,
playing two games in Boise, Idaho,
before losing to Maryland in the
regional semifinal in Anaheim, Calif.
"We couldn't use our home court,
the MCI Center, because it's the site of
the NCAA Tournament's first two
rounds this week," Esherick said. "It
got to the point that since we couldn't
have a home game we wanted to be

playing closer to home to not miss
class. After a while I said 'Look,
maybe we're better off not doing it."'
NIT executive director Jack Powers
confirmed travel was the reason.
"They just could not work out travel
arrangements," he said Sunday.
The only other team to ever turn
down an NIT bid was Louisville in
1987, when the Cardinals were 18-14 a
year after winning the national cham-
pionship.
Richmond, Saint Joseph's, St.
Bonaventure, Temple and Dayton were
selected for the NIT, which gets under
way Tuesday night with five games.
Through the first four rounds, all
games are played at campus sites.
The semifinals and championship
game are at New York's Madison
Square Garden on March 26 and 28.
Conference USA was next with four
teams - South Florida, Louisville,
Memphis and Houston - while the
Big East, Mountain West and South-
eastern Conference each had three.
The Ivy League had two teams
selected, Princeton and Yale.
The addition of eight teams to the
field means eight opening-round
games, with the winners moving into
the first round.
The first-round games to be played

Tuesday have Arizona State at UNLV
and Princeton at Louisville.
"If you make it there, Madison
Square Garden is probably the most
exciting place to play in college bas-
ketball," said first-year Louisville
coach Rick Pitino, who coached the
NBA's New York Knicks in that build-
ing. "It would be quite an experience
for us if we could get there."
