They did not receive an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, and they did not receive a top seed in the NIT.

The Green Bay Phoenix men’s basketball team instead was tabbed with a 4-seed in the National Invitation Tournament.

Green Bay (24-6) will take on No. 5 seed Belmont (24-9), the Ohio Valley Conference regular season champion. Both teams received automatic bids to the NIT for winning their regular season conference titles.

That game will be played Tuesday at 7:15 p.m. at the Resch Center in Green Bay.
