The 2014 NIT TV schedule will commence on Tuesday March 18th, 2014. The National Invitational Tournament is operated by the NCAA and was first played in 1938. The final rounds of the NIT are played at MSG (Madison Square Garden) in New York City. The regions in the NIT are broken up by the #1 seed in each region. The top seeds for the 2014 NIT Tournament are SMU, St. John’s, Minnesota, and Florida State (these teams also happen to be some of the top snubs for the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament).
