The NCAA tournament isn't the only tournament from March. The NIT this season has one of the strongest fields in years, and will have plenty of story lines.
From seniors looking to play their last career games to guys hoping to boost their draft stock one last time, the NIT has it all.
Even though the NIT is often overshadowed and given unfair nicknames, the level of play is very underrated. With players like Alec Burks, Norris Cole, Malcolm Delaney, Reggie Jackson and Chris Warren, the NIT is nowhere near short on talent.
Plenty of NBA scouts will attend these games, and for good reason.
With some of the strongest snubs in recent years, the quality of teams are on the rise. Fortunately for the people who run the NIT, more games should be watched this year.
Let's get down to it. Here are some previews and predictions for this year's NIT.
