Schools in both NCAA and NIT tournaments, same year

Postby luckyshow » Thu Feb 14, 2013 6:17 pm

Does anyone have a list of colleges that were in both the NIT and NCAA tournaments in the same season?

I know Kentucky tried this in late 1940s, and probably lost games due to fixing scandal. I realize I could research this but have no time today. 1947, 48 or 49.

CCNY, of course, and Bradley. After the scandal, there were two more. Seattle and St. John's/ 1952, 1953, somewhere in there.

Anyone know?

Morgan G. Brenner's 1999 book College Basketball's National Championships
has this list:

1940 Colorado
1940 Duquesne
1944 Utah
1949 Kentucky
1950 Bradley
1950 CCNY
1951 Arizona
1951 Brigham Young
1951 North Carolina State
1951 St. John's (NY)
1952 Dayton
1952 Duquesne
1952 St. John's (NY)
Beginning with the 1953 season the NCAA decreed that colleges could not participate
in two post-season tournaments in the same year.
