NIT Tournament 2013 selection show: Time, TV schedule and more

The NCAA tournament is set, and the announcement of the NIT field is up next.

USA TODAY Sports

The announcement of the NIT field comes Sunday night, two hours following the end of the NCAA tournament announcement show. Disappointed mid-major and power-conference schools that missed out on the NCAAs will learn whether or not they've done enough to earn an NIT bid.

A committee determines the majority of the 32-team field, but some schools receive automatic bids. Any team that won its league's regular season title, lost in its conference tournament and failed to receive an NCAA tournament at-large bid is automatically in the NIT.

The Big 12 got five teams into the NCAAs, but Baylor was not among them; the Bears could end up earning a top seed in the NIT. Other power-conference notables to miss out on the NCAAs include Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia, Alabama, Iowa and Arizona State.

A field projection is available at The Bracket Project. Here's the key info for Sunday's selection show:

Time: 8 p.m. CT

TV: ESPNU
