The NIT semifinals are held in Madison Square Garden, and perhaps because it includes some teams notably snubbed from the NCAA Tournament, is one of the most appealing quartets in recent memory. It’s Lutherans vs. Mormons in the opener as Valparaiso takes on BYU (7 p.m. EDT, ESPN), and that is followed by another good matchup with George Washington against San Diego State (9:30 p.m.).
The Vegas 16 also holds its semifinals, with Old Dominion vs. UC Santa Barbara (9 p.m., CBSSN) and Oakland taking on East Tennessee State (11:30 p.m., CBSSN).
