The Saint Mary’s men’s basketball team has made some giant steps in the past few years, climbing from a “sure-win” for other teams to a team in the national rankings.

The next step, returning to the NCAA Tournament, was stopped by the NCAA Tournament selection committee when they left the Gaels out of the 65-team bracket.

Despite winning 26 games and finishing second in the West Coast Conference, the Gaels were left out in favor of sixth and seventh place teams from major conferences.

Saint Mary’s will get to play in the NIT, which will give them a chance to prove that the selection committee made the wrong decision.
