When was the last time Penn State won the NIT?

Penn State Nittany Lions' basketball Its most recent appearance was in 2011, when the team lost to the Temple Owls in the round of 64. The program also has 11 appearances in the National Invitation Tournament, with the most recent being in 2018, when they beat Utah to win the NIT championship. They also won the NIT championship in 2009.

Prior to 2011, Penn State had never appeared in the NIT. The Nittany Lions did make the tournament four times between 1946 and 1950, but they were eliminated each time by either UCLA or Ohio State.

In addition to its NCAA basketball program, Penn State has been participating in the NIT since it began holding games on March 19, 1948. The NIT is an annual college basketball tournament that features a variety of teams from across the United States. The best-of-three series are played before conference play has been completed by most teams in the NCAA. Each game is called "semi-final" because only eight teams will advance out of the first round. The winners of these semi-finals advance to the next round where they will be matched up against another team from around the country. The two winners from this round qualify for the final four which determines the national champion.

The NIT started as a response by universities to avoid conflicting with their NCAA schedules. Since then, it has become such a popular event that many consider it to be more important than the NCAA tournament.

Did IU make the NIT tournament?

Indiana went 0-4 against top-10 opponents this season. The only other team with no wins against top-10 teams is San Diego State, which dropped its last four games against ranked opponents.

This is the second straight year that Indiana has made the NIT after missing out on the NCAA Tournament for the third consecutive season. Last year's team fell in the first round to South Florida, 70-72.

How do you qualify for the NIT?

Any club that is the regular-season winner of its conference but does not qualify for March Madness receives an automatic trip to the NIT. After all 68 teams are chosen for the NCAA tournament, the remainder of the field is established, regardless of conference. The top three remaining teams after the first round of games will proceed to the second round, and so on until we have completed our eight-team bracket.

There is a separate NIT tournament for each division within the Big Ten. These tournaments are called the "Midwest Region" and "East Coast Region" tournaments because they take place in Chicago and New York City, respectively. The winners of these tournaments receive automatic bids into the NIT. They are referred to as "first-round byes." Any team that wishes to play in one of these tournaments must be selected by the executive director of the NIT to ensure that every game is played. A committee of NIT staff members makes this decision based on how well each team performed in its conference.

In addition to these two single-division tournaments, four multiple-division tournaments take place throughout the year. These tournaments are called the "At-Large" spots because they are awarded to any team that meets certain criteria. Teams can also earn at-large bids by winning their conference tournament or being ranked high enough in the national poll.
