Andy Katz reports we will be in the pre-season NIT:

Four campus hosts in the 16-team event: Duke, Connecticut, LSU, Arizona State
Yeah, I had heard we would be in. That is exciting to head back to MSG. I'll be there.
2009-2010 can't come soon enough.
Smackin my lips for a showdown with U-Con....
Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!
Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell!

Sweet! Tickets will probably be easy to get for that, too.
From what I can remember, we are 2 and 2 vs. UConn in the NCAA tourney with the winner doing no worse than finishing National Runner-up. I'm all for a NCAA rubber match.
Also participating are Coastal Carolina and UNC-Charlotte. I would expect to see both of those teams in Cameron.
here (scroll to the bottom) that Duke and Gonzaga are in talks about playing at MSG on Sat Dec 19th.
Gonzaga loses Pargo, Downs and Heytvelt, but they still have Daye, Gray, Bouldin and Goodson and should be a top 25 team.
I would predict the exact opposite if UConn makes it to MSG. Unless you're an Iron Duke, you'll have to watch the public ticket sale very closely to get in the door.
I've sold tickets to various venues in and around NY for a few years now. It will be a popular ticket, but I would expect availability.
