    After a loss to Bradley in the 1957 NIT, Wulk was replaced as head trainer from Jim McCafferty. McCafferty led the Musketeers back to some third straight NIT in 1958. With wins over Niagara, Bradley, St. Bonaventure and Dayton, Xavier seized the NIT. That was the first postseason championship obtained by any Ohio Division I school.
    Back in 1961, McCafferty led Xavier to their first appearance in the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament. On March 14, 1961, Xavier fell to Morehead State at the Kentucky State Fairgrounds in Louisville, Kentucky.
