Collegiate played in the LIT in 2012, when it lost in the first round to Fern Creek 69-58. I know they were really disappointed last year when they did not make the field.
Collegiate was 17th in the SETH rankings released last week, so they need to move up at least one spot to make the field this year. While I don't know much about how the SETH rankings work, I anticipate Collegiate being in the field when it is announced on January 2.
And you're right about being up against it if they get into the LIT. My guess is that they will have a first round game against either Trinity or Fern Creek. Whoever they might face will be a step up from the teams they have faced so far. But I also suspect Coach Settembre, who is doing a good job with the Titans, will say they welcome the challenge.
