The 2012 NIT is down to eight teams -- the Washington Huskies, Oregon Ducks, Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders, Minnesota Golden Gophers, UMass Minutemen, Drexel Dragons, Nevada Wolf Pack and Stanford Cardinal -- and the action is heating up. Unfortunately, the Northwestern Wildcats and Illinois St. Redbirds couldn't hang around long enough to make a bigger impact on the tournament, but there is still plenty of exciting action to come in the NIT.
On Tuesday night, No. 3 Drexel takes on No. 5 UMass and No. 1 Washington has a matchup against No. 3 Oregon on the opposite side of the bracket. Here's the full schedule for Tuesday's action in the 2012 NIT Tournament.
No. 3 Drexel vs. No. 5 Massachusetts - 6:00 p.m. CT, ESPN/ESPN3
No. 1 Washington vs. No. 3 Oregon - 8:00 p.m. CT, ESPN/ESPN3
