NIT 2013 selection show: TV schedule, start time, streaming and more

USA TODAY Sports

The NIT will select its 32-team field at 9 p.m. ET live. Here's where you can catch the action.

The National Invitational Tournament is hardly the big draw that the NCAA Tournament is, but that doesn't mean there won't be any interesting basketball. This is a chance for teams who felt snubbed by the Big Dance to prove themselves, while mid-major teams will be looking to raise their profile.

As usual, 32 teams will be competing in the NIT. Automatic bids are handed out to those who won their conference's regular season championship but lost in the tournament. By that criteria, 10 teams already have their ticket punched, meaning there are only 22 spots left to hand out Sunday night.

The NIT will begin on March 19 and run through April 4. The first three rounds will be held at the campuses of the higher seeds, with the last two rounds taking place at Madison Square Garden. Here's the schedule for the selection show:

Time: 9 p.m. ET

TV: ESPNU
