I think the team can compete for an NCAA berth with the squad it has now, a longshot, but NIT should never be a goal.
We lost some key pieces in Hudson and DFS, but I think their production can be replaced. Last years team lost 12 games by 5 points or less! And went toe to toe with Duke twice, the eventual ACC champion FSU twice, and KSU. A few bounces here and there and it could have been a completely different feel to last season.
