NIT Schedule

The NIT will begin Tuesday, and largely avoids overlap with the NCAA Tournament except for the second round this weekend.

  • First Round: March 15-16
  • Second Round: March 19-20
  • Quarterfinals: March 22-23
  • Semifinals: March 29
  • Championship: March 31

When Is the NIT Selection Show?

The NIT Selection Show will begin at 9 p.m. ET on ESPNU, as the field cannot be finalized until the NCAA Tournament bracket is revealed.

Who Gets into the NIT?

NIT bids go to teams that did not make the NCAA Tournament but finished above .500. All regular season conference champions that did not make the NCAA Tournament get invites.

The field is 32 teams for first time since 2019; it dropped to 16 teams last year due to COVID-19 and was canceled in 2020.
