Not every team makes the ​NCAA Tournament. In fact, a number of quality college basketball teams miss out on the big dance. But luckily there is the NIT, a 32-team tournament with the same single-elimination format as the NCAA Tournament, filled with the next 32 teams that were just outside the bubble and/or lost in their respective conference tournaments.


Teams like Indiana, Alabama, Clemson and NC State are big-name schools that just didn't quite have the resume to hear their name called on Selection Sunday. This is their postseason, this is their tournament. 


Like the NCAA Tournament, The Duel has created a printable version of the 2019 NIT Bracket, which starts on Tuesday, March 19. It can be found both in the tweet below as well as ​a PDF version here.

All lines and totals for the NIT Tournament can also be found on ​FanDuel Sportsbook

It might not be the NCAA Tournament, but the NIT can still provide plenty of madness. After all, it's still college basketball in March.
