NIT History

The National Invitation Tournament (NIT) is a college basketball tournament played each spring, with its final rounds in New York City at Madison Square Garden. The tournament pre-dates the NCAA tournament. Since the rise to prominence of the NCAA tournament, the post-season NIT has consisted of teams who failed to qualify for the NCAA event.

There are separate men's and women's tournaments. There is also a "Preseason NIT", typically held in November.

Originated by the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association in 1938, responsibility for administering the NIT was transferred two years later to local colleges, first known as the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Basketball Committee and in 1948, as the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Basketball Association (MIBA), which today is comprised of representatives from the five New York City schools, Fordham University, Manhattan College, New York University, St. John's University and Wagner College.
