NIT Bracket 2012: UCF Will Take On Drexel

The 2012 NIT Bracket was released Sunday evening, and the Central Florida Knights (22-10) earned a No. 6 seed and will take on the No. 3 seed Drexel Dragons (27-6) on Wednesday, March 14, at 7:15 p.m. on ESPN3.

UCF is no doubt disappointed they were left out of the NCAA Tournament, but a strong showing in the NIT would still be a rewarding conclusion to Knights season. Last season, the Knights missed out on both the NCAA Tournament and the NIT Tournament, but did make it to the semifinals of the CBI Tournament where they lost to Creighton. The Knights will now face off against Drexel in the first round of the NIT Tournament.

Drexel had an outside shot of making it into the NCAA Tournament, but their bubble was burst. Drexel was the Colonial League regular season champ, but went down to VCU in the Colonial Tournament Finals.
