Madison Square Garden
Madison Square Garden is the final destination for the NIT teams.
2007 NIT Season Tip-Off
Sixteen teams start off with Big Apple dreams but only Texas A&M left as the champion of the 2007 Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off. The action started at four regional sites, with Syracuse, Washington, Ohio State and Texas A&M advancing to the semifinals in New York City on Nov. 21. After Ohio State bested Syracuse and Texas A&M dropped Washington, the Aggies ran past the Buckeyes to earn the NIT Season Tip-Off championship.
