Dallas-Fort Worth to host all games of downsized 16-team NIT

The show will go on this year for the National Invitation Tournament, just not at its traditional home, Madison Square Garden.

After last year's cancellation, a downsized 2021 version of the NIT will consist of 16 college basketball teams (instead of 32) and be played exclusively in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the NCAA announced Monday. The tournament will tip off with first-round games March 17-20 at Comerica Center in Frisco, Texas, and at UNT Coliseum on the campus of North Texas in Denton, Texas.
