StatSeed is StatSheet's postseason projections for all of Division I, including the NCAA Tournament, National Invitation Tournament (NIT), College Basketball Invitational (CBI), and the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT). Read more about how StatSeed is calculated.

StatSheet is now projecting Rutgers will get to the NIT as a six seed, provided they finish with a winning record. The Scarlet Knights are ranked #119 in the StatSheet StatRank, and their NIT bid will hang on their 15-15 overall record and 5-13 record in the Big East.

During the last four games, Rutgers chalked up wins against DePaul and Seton Hall but also took on losses against AP #12 Marquette and AP #5 Georgetown.

Rutgers struggles against strong competition, with a 3-13 record against the RPI Top 100 that includes a 1-10 record against the RPI Top 50 and a 1-6 record against AP ranked teams. While the Scarlet Knights have a single quality win against AP #17 Pittsburgh, they're also weighed down by two bad losses including RPI #194 DePaul and RPI #288 St. Peter's.

The last four teams into the NCAA Tournament with at-large bids are Alabama (20-11, 12-6 SEC, StatRank #63), La Salle (21-8, 11-5 A-10, StatRank #41), Baylor (18-13, 9-9 Big 12, StatRank #61), and Ole Miss (23-8, 12-6 SEC, StatRank #56).

The first four teams out are Iowa (20-11, 9-9 Big Ten, StatRank #75), Southern Miss (23-8, 12-4 Conference USA, StatRank #47), Virginia (21-10, 11-7 ACC, StatRank #63), and Wichita State (26-8, 12-6 Missouri Valley, StatRank #33).

The next four out are Arkansas (19-12, 10-8 SEC, StatRank #78), California (20-10, 12-6 Pac-12, StatRank #46), Providence (17-13, 9-9 Big East, StatRank #83), and St. John's (16-14, 8-10 Big East, StatRank #79).
