NIT Tournament Schedule: Wednesday's Slate Features Minnesota Playing La Salle

The 2012 NIT schedule will continue Wednesday night with another full slate of games on the ESPN network. The Minnesota Golden Gophers will attempt to move through the bracket starting at 7 p.m. on ESPN2, but there are plenty of other games to keep an eye on as the first round of the tournament comes to a close.

The winner of Wednesday night's game between the Gophers and La Salle will advance to play the winner of a game between the Miami Hurricanes and Valparaiso Crusaders. If anyone's interested in doing some advance scouting, that game will be televised on ESPNU at 7:30.

The other game that might be worth keeping an eye on will take place following the conclusion of the Gophers game. That's when the top-seeded Arizona Wildcats host the Bucknell Bison, a team featuring Roseville, Minn., native Mike Muscala.
