The 2012 NIT Selection Show could have good things in store for the Denver Pioneers and the Weber St. Wildcats .

The 2012 NCAA Tournament Selection Show has come and gone, but we still have the National Invitation Tournament selection to go through. That comes two hours after the end of the NCAA Selection Show, which means it starts at 7:00 p.m. MT.

While the Colorado Buffaloes and the Colorado St. Rams are in the NCAA Tournament, the Denver Pioneers are on the bubble following a loss in the semifinals of the 2012 Sun Belt Tournament. But the Middle Tenn. St. Blue Raiders were also bounced early in the tournament, preventing the regular season champion from making the NCAA Tournament. The NIT gives out invitations to regular season conference champions who do not make the NCAA Tournament, diminishing the Pioneers' chances.

Weber State, over in Utah, went 24-6 (14-2 Big Sky) and is also on the NIT bubble. Point guard Damian Lillard and his 24.5 points per game this season could receive greater national attention should the Wildcats make the field.

Time: 7:00 p.m. MT
