Despite a 24-6 record including a win over #1 seed Virginia, the Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team was left out of the 68-team field for the NCAA basketball tournament.

Instead, Green Bay will play in the NIT for the first time since 1992, hosting Belmont at 7:15 on Tuesday night.

Local 5's Burke Griffin and Ryan Rodig talk about the Phoenix.
