The 2012 NIT bracket (pdf) was announced on Sunday night, and while there was nothing to concern the St. Louis Billikens, who safely made the NCAA Tournament earlier in the evening, several other Atlantic-10 teams were awaiting their postseason fates. Dayton, La Salle, St. Joe's and UMass were among the A-10 teams to make the 2012 NIT field.
The first round games get underway on Tuesday night, and the semifinals at Madison Square Garden are set for March 27.
