San Jose State learned on Monday morning that they would not receive an at-large selection to the 2009 NCAA Tournament, which begins on May 30. The Western Athletic Conference regular season title was not enough to overcome a 77 RPI.
SJSU was one of two teams with more than 40 wins to be excluded from the NCAA tournament - the other being WAC member New Mexico State, who finished 2009 with a 44-17 record.
2009 Napa Auto Parts WAC Tournament champ, and defending National Champion Fresno State received the conference automatic bid and will play in the Irvine Regional.
