NIT Tournament Schedule 2012: Monday's TV Slate Features Minnesota And Miami On ESPN

The 2012 NIT schedule will continue on Monday night when Minnesota Golden Gophers take on the Miami Hurricanes in Coral Gables, Fla. That game, which will be televised on ESPN at 8 p.m., is one of three games on the National Invitational Tournament's schedule to open the week.

The Gophers entered the tournament as a No. 6 seed, but dispatched the La Salle Explorers in the opening round. Miami earned a No. 2 seed by way of a 20-12 record, including 9-7 in the ACC. The Hurricanes will be a bit short-handed in their game, too, as Durand Scott is serving part of a multi-game suspension mandated by the NCAA for inappropriate contributions under former coach Frank Haith.

The other games taking place on Monday night will feature the top-seeded Tennessee Volunteers taking on the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders in an intrastate rivalry game as well as the Stanford Cardinal matching up with the Illinois St. Redbirds at 11:30 p.m. on ESPN2.
