Shortly after the 68-team field was announced for the 2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, the 16-team field for the NIT was set, too. Of those 16 teams, one comes from the ACC: 3-seed NC State.
NC State will play 2-seed Davidson in the first round of the NIT: Thursday, March 18. The game will take place in Denton, Texas. The winner of this matchup will advance to play the winner of Colorado State and Buffalo.

NC State most recently participated in the NIT back in 2019. During the 2019 NIT, NCSU won its first two game — Hofstra and Harvard. However, the Wolfpack lost a thriller in Reynolds Coliseum against Lipscomb.
