IF you’re watching the NIT, you need to know…


For the third time in four years, the NIT is running with experimental rule changes, some of which are drastic.

  • The three-point line will be extended back 20 inches to what the arc is in FIBA play
  • The free throw line will be widened four feet to NBA regulation
  • Games will play out in four, 10-minute quarters instead of two, 20-minute halves. Teams will shoot free throws after the fifth foul of each quarter
  • The shot clock resets to 20 seconds after offensive rebounds instead of 30 seconds
