2016 National Invitation Tournament

Now in its 79th year, the National Invitation Tournament brings playoff-caliber college basketball to Madison Square Garden, giving programs across the country the chance to ball their way to postseason glory. Before watching the NIT add another chapter to its storied history, here are a few things to know:

  • The field starts with 32 teams, and those teams are divided into four eight-team quadrants. The first three rounds unfold on the campuses of the tournament’s participating schools, but when the field is whittled down to four teams, the competition moves to Manhattan.
  • Last year, #1 seeds were upset in the semifinal round as Miami Florida shocked Temple and Stanford toppled Old Dominion.
  • The 2015 championship didn’t disappoint after those thrilling semifinal games, either. In it, the Hurricanes overcame a 13-point second-half deficit to force overtime, where the Cardinal’s Chasson Randle drained two go-ahead free throws just three seconds before the buzzer sounded. Minutes later, the ball burst into shreds of confetti, revealing the shiny NIT Trophy inside.
