The National Invitation Tournament (NIT) is leaving New York City and will be making a stop in B1G country in the future.

On Friday, it was announced that the NIT will be hosting semifinal and championship matchups in Las Vegas for 2023. Indianapolis will host the event in 2024. The NIT is a 32-team tournament that traditionally features the top basketball teams that did not make the NCAA Tournament.

In 2023, UNLV will host the semifinals and championship matchups on March 28 and 30 at Orleans Arena. In 2024, Butler will host the event at Hinkle Fieldhouse. The 2024 dates are set for April 2 and 4.

The most recent champion out of the B1G was Penn State. The Nittany Lions captured the NIT in 2018.

The NIT relocating was not the only college basketball news from Friday. It was also reported that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey is calling for a “fresh look” at the NCCA Tournament model. According to that report, Sankey is at least advocating for a look at expanding the March Madness field.
