Toreros Make NIT, Head to Memphis

USD earns spot in National Invitation Tournament for the first time

The 32nd and last team to show up on the board of the National Invitation Tournament was the University of San Diego. It’s the first time the Toreros have ever been asked to play in the NIT and they were caught a little off-guard by it.

“My wife and I had a moment of being stunned for a second,” said Toreros head coach Sam Scholl. “There was a little bit of a gasp and kind of a make sure moment and then we started going crazy.”

USD basketball coach Sam Scholl talks to NBC 7 Sports Wrap anchor Darnay Tripp about his reaction when the Toreros were selected at the sixth seed for the NIT.
