No. 16 LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds
How they got here: Won Northeast tournament.
Strengths: The Blackbirds, who average a blistering 79.5 points, showed they can handle adversity in earning their third straight berth.
Weaknesses: LIU has lacked depth since last season's NEC player of the year, Julian Boyd, tore his right ACL in December.
