2017 NIT Selection Show: Start time, TV Channel, live stream, & how to watch

Will this tournament include Ohio State? Only way to find out is to watch.

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Ohio State vs Rutgers Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The NCAA Selection Show starts at 5:30 today, but we all know Ohio State won’t hear their name called. Any tiny chance for the Buckeyes to dance ended when Ohio State lost to Rutgers to open the Big Ten Tournament.

But the NIT? That’s still a possibility. Ohio State didn’t commit to playing in the NIT on Wednesday, but they’re still likely to get an invite, if they want one, with various bracket projection sites slotting them around a five seed slot.

Should the Buckeyes fail to earn a top four seed in the NIT, they’ll be on the road, with opening round games being played on campus sites. The final four, of course, is played in New York City.

Will they accept a bid? Where will they play? Who will they play? We’ll find out tonight. Here’s how to watch:
