Last NCAA independent hoops school, NJIT, joins Atlantic Sun

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) NCAA men's and women's basketball no longer has any independent institutions now that the New Jersey Institute of Technology agreed Friday to join the Atlantic Sun Conference.

The lone independent among 351 Division I basketball schools over the past two years will be part of the conference in all sports beginning in the fall.

NJIT will be immediately eligible to compete for all Atlantic Sun postseason tournaments, plus have a chance to earn a berth in the NCAA Tournament. The NJIT men's soccer team already had a commitment to be a working member of the Sun Belt for the 2015 season, but the Highlanders will join the Atlantic Sun for soccer in 2016.
