NIT 2012, Middle Tennessee Vs. Minnesota: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

Two members of the NIT Final Four have been decided, with Washington and Massachusetts winning their games to make the semifinals. Now, the final two will be decided on Monday, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers will have a chance to make it into the semis against the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders.

Both teams had a bit of an upset special earlier to get to the quarterfinals. Minnesota toppled No. 2 seed Miami while the Blue Raiders beat their rivals and No. 1 seed Tennessee.

The Blue Raiders had won the Sun Belt with a 27-6 overall record and 14-2 in conference, but faltered in the conference tournament that was eventually won by Western Kentucky. Minnesota had a mediocre year in the Big Ten but a good overall record of 21-14 to earn their NIT berth. The winner of the match will go on to face the Washington Huskies.
