The 2013 National Invitation Tournament is set with 32 teams locked in the bracket. Kentucky, last year's NCAA Tournament champion, received the No. 1 overall seed for the NIT after finishing 21-11 in regular season play.
John Calipari saw multiple players head for the NBA after Kentucky's title run in 2012. Add in an injury to top recruit Nerlens Noel, and his Wildcats are no strangers to adversity this season. Kentucky will face No. 8 Robert Morris Tuesday night in the opening round of tournament play.
