NIT bracket, scores, schedule 2024: Seton Hall to face Indiana State for championship as No. 1 seeds advance



Indiana State was left out of the NCAA Tournament, but the Sycamores are having themselves a memorable March anyway. No. 1 seed ISU is just one victory away from hoisting the NIT trophy after eliminating No. 2 seed Utah with a 100-90 win in the semifinals on Tuesday night inside Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Ryan Cornwell led the Sycamores with 27 while Robbie Vail added 26 points and 10 rebounds. Indiana State shot 57% from the floor while outlasting a Utes squad that hit 17 of 29 attempts from 3-point range. ISU will play fellow No. 1 seed Seton Hall in the championship game on Thursday.

The Pirates earned their spot in the title game by knocking off No. 4 seed Georgia 84-67 in Tuesday night’s second semifinal. Five players reached double figures for Seton Hall, led by Al-Amir Dawes with 20. The Pirates led by as much as 24 in the second half as Georgia struggled to a 5 of 26 shooting performance from 3-point range.

Like Indiana State, Seton Hall was left on the wrong side of the NCAA Tournament’s at-large cutoff. But both teams have managed to stay motivated and press for what would be a significant achievement. Seton Hall last won the NIT in 1953, and Indiana State has never won it.
