NIT 2013 selection show: Time, TV schedule and more

Andy Lyons

The NIT selection show airs at 9 p.m. ET Sunday, grabbing up the teams that didn't make it into the NCAA tournament.

The 2013 NIT will hold its selection show on Sunday. The tournament typically selects the teams that were either snubbed for the NCAA tournament or simply didn't have the resume to match up. It doesn't have the glowing reputation of the Big Dance, but there is still some interesting basketball to be played, and it serves as a pleasant distraction in the middle of the week while waiting for the NCAA games to start up on the weekend.

Thirty-two teams will be selected for the NIT. Automatic bids are given out to the teams that won their regular season conference title but lost in the tournament. Under that criteria, 10 teams are already qualified, so there's only 22 spots left to hand out.

The tournament begins on March 19. The first three rounds will be played at the campus sites of the higher seeds, while the final two rounds move to Madison Square Garden. Here's the schedule for Sunday's selection show:

Time: 9 p.m. ET

TV: ESPNU
