What the 3 NIT games tell us about scheduling opponents

Basically the Terps got shut out of the NCAA tournament due to their soft Out-Of-Conference opponents. Yes there were other reasons, but the low SOS really made our RPI take a huge hit. Now consider this: suppose we had scheduled Niagara, Denver, and Alabama (away) intsead of Moorehead State, Long Island, and Georgia Southern.Our SOS would have been elevated, we'd have (assuming the outcomes of the games against the NIT opponnets held during regular season games) a quality road win, and probably be dancing. If anything the NIT so far has showed that we can compete successfully against 50-100 RPI teams. I'm sure Coach Turgeon is thinking along the same lines and will have a more meaningful Out-Of-Conference schedule next year.
