NIT 2013 streaming, TV schedule and more

Jim McIsaac

The NIT will be broadcast across a wide array of ESPN platforms on Wednesday. Read on to find out where to watch your team.

The first round of the 2013 National Invitation Tournament resumes on Wednesday with a No. 1 seed and a trio of No. 2 seeds in action.

The Southern Miss Golden Eagles are the lone top seed on the schedule, taking on the No. 8 Charleston Southern Buccaneers. The Golden Eagles (25-9, 12-4 C-USA) boast the third-most wins of any team in the tournament and have a chance to win their first NIT Championship since 1987.

The Tennessee Volunteers were the only team in the NIT that SB Nation bracketologist Chris Dobbertean had in his final NCAA Tournament projections. Instead, the Volunteers were left out of the Big Dance in favor of Middle Tennessee, and their consolation is a No. 2 seed in the NIT and a date with the No. 7 Mercer Bears. Two other No. 2 seeds, the Massachusetts Minutemen and Baylor Bears, have opening round games on Wednesday night as well.
