NCAA Basketball: NIT Championship-Georgia Tech vs Texas Christian Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The bracket for the 2018 NIT, which will feature Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Louisville, Baylor and more, will be revealed at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 11 on ESPNU.

Who will be in the NIT?

We know that Notre Dame, Baylor, Saint Mary’s and USC — the first four teams left out of the NCAA Tournament — will be the No. 1 seeds.

We also know that the following regular season conference champions have earned automatic bids to the tournament:

Arkansas-Pine Bluff (SWAC)
Florida Gulf Coast (ASUN)
Hampton (MEAC)
Louisiana (Sun Belt)
Middle Tennessee (Conference USA)
Nevada (Mountain West)
Northern Kentucky (Horizon)
Rider (MAAC)
UC Davis (Big West)
UNC Asheville (Big South)
Vermont (America East)
Wagner (Northeast Conference)

That leaves 16 more bids out there to complete the field of 32.
