The NIT second round will feature the victor of the Penn State-Temple game against the victor of Tuesday's Notre Dame-Hampton contest, with second round date, location and time to be announced. The Nittany Lions have just two seniors, Shep Garner and Julian Moore, on their 2017-18 roster.

Notre Dame comes into the NIT as one of the favorites to win the whole thing.
