While the NCAA Tournament selection is today, many Pitt fans will be paying a little closer attention to the NIT selection show. Projections have Pitt landing in the field despite an absolute free-fall at the end of the season.
You can catch the NCAA tournament show and begin filling out your tournament brackets at 6:00 p.m. on CBS tonight. Shortly after that will be the NIT show once it's determined which teams are available. The 32-team field will be announced at 8:30 p.m. on ESPNU and Pitt's name is likely to be heard at some point there.
After the selections there, there's not much time for teams to get ready. Following the play-in games, the NCAA Tournament gets underway later in the week. The NIT starts with play on Tuesday with no play-in contests.
Madison Square Garden will host the Final Four of the NIT on Tuesday, March 31st with the final being on Thursday, April 2nd.
