NIT 2014 selection show: Time, TV schedule and more

That other invitational tournament's bracket is out. You can also download our printable NCAA Tournament bracket.

Just because the bubble will pop on a few college teams around the nation doesn't mean their seasons are over, as the NIT will unveil its bracket just a few hours after the NCAA Tournament field is revealed.

Although it has the stigma of being the place where the first losers head, the NIT provides a postseason home for those teams that the selection committee did not deem worthy enough to partake in the Big Dance. It's also the perfect place to send a message to the selection committee that it made a mistake in leaving out certain teams. Baylor was snubbed by the committee last year and proved everyone wrong by becoming the NIT champion.

The NIT is also the people's tournament. Teams that won their regular-season conference titles but lost out on the automatic bids in their conference tournaments get an automatic qualification into the NIT. After that, the committee fills out the remaining 32 spots with the best teams out there. The squads battle it out all the way to Madison Square Garden, where the NIT Champion will be crowned on April 3.

The first round of the NIT begins on Tuesday, March 18.

Here is the information for when the NIT selection show is airing and how to watch it.

Time: 8:30 p.m. ET

TV Schedule: ESPNU

Bracket: Get your bracket at the official site of the NCAA
