The NIT has come calling for the Missouri Tigers. Mizzou finished the regular season with a 16-16 record, which is just good enough to qualify for the NIT—teams must have at least a .500 record—and they’ll host DePaul in the first round Tuesday night. The NIT hasn’t been friendly to the Tigers, which sport a 1-6 mark all-time in the tournament. Last year they lost to Michigan 65-64 in Ann Arbor. The last time MU hosted an NIT game was in 1998, when they lost to UAB 93-86 at the Hearnes Center. This will mark Mizzou and DePaul’s fifth meeting, with the Tigers and Blue Demons splitting the previous four games. DePaul enters the game with a record of 19-10. This marks the second straight season that the Tigers have missed the NCAA Tournament.
