NJIT 'playing to get in a league,' not a title

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) The New Jersey Institute of Technology is the only NCAA Division I independent men's basketball team, a distinction that can make life a little difficult at times.

While most Division I teams are winding down the regular season, facing league foes and gearing toward their respective conference tournaments, NJIT was forced to play D-III teams like Wheelock, the University of Maine-Fort Kent and an NAIA member Fisher College of Massachusetts.

The Highlanders are the only team among the 345 NCAA Division I programs without a conference affiliation.
