Kentucky and Alabama both received No. 1 seeds for the 2013 NIT Tournament. Here's a look at the entire bracket.

The Kentucky Wildcats are the top overall seed once again, only this time its not in the tournament they were hoping for. The 2013 NIT Tournament is set, with the Wildcats coming in at No. 1. They will take on No. 8 Robert Morris in the opening round.

Alabama also received a No. 1 seed. The Crimson Tide finished 21-12 this season and reached the semifinals of the SEC Tournament before being knocked off by the Florida Gators. A first-round matchup with No. 8 Northeastern now awaits the Tide.

Tennessee will also be a part of the NIT action after receiving a No. 2 seed. The Volunteers face No. 7 Mercer in Round 1. The Bears finished first in the Atlantic Sun with a 14-4 conference record.
