The NIT semifinals is set with four teams playing on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden for a chance to play in the tournament's championship game on Thursday. Washington advanced to the semifinals after beating Pac-12 rival Oregon in the quarterfinals last Tuesday.
The No. 5 seeded UMass Minutemen also advanced on Tuesday to the quarterfinals after squeaking out a 72-70 victory over Drexel. Last Wednesday, the Minnesota Golden Gophers beat Middle Tennessee and the Stanford Cardinal beat Nevada to advance to the semifinals.
