The NIT is back, though with a slightly different destination than before in 2023.

With 32 teams that came up short of the NCAA Tournament participating, this year is the first time the Final Four of the oldest continuously-running college basketball tournament in America will hold their last three games not in Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas will play host for the NIT semifinals and championship game. While the event moved to Texas due to Covid-19 in 2021, this will be the first time the event won’t finish in the World’s Most Famous Arena not due to a pandemic.

All teams who won their regular season conference championship but didn’t earn a bid to the NCAA Tournament via winning the conference tournament or earning an at-large bid are guaranteed a spot in the NIT. From there the selection committee takes the best teams that fell short of the NCAA’s to set its 32-team field. 16 of those teams are seeded, and all games are played on the campus of the better-seeded team until the semifinals.
