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:
