NIT Announces Game Time, Broadcast Change
March 12, 2001
The TiVo NIT announced Monday, Memphis's first-round NIT game at Utah has been changed to an 8 p.m. central time tip-off and will now be broadcast by ESPN.
The game was originally scheduled to tip-off an hour later and was to be broadcast by ESPN2.
Memphis's bracket to a possible appearance in the NIT's semifinals in New York City has a definite western flavor.
If Memphis wins Tuesday at Utah, the Tigers would face the winner of Wednesday's UTEP-McNeese State game next Monday or Tuesday. Memphis would face either Pepperdine, Wyoming, New Mexico or Baylor in the quarterfinals if the Tigers were to win their first two tournament games.
The site for both the second and quarterfinal rounds have not been determined.
