Wichita State has been selected to compete in the 2019 National Invitation Tournament (NIT).

The Shockers are seeded sixth and will travel to Greenville, S.C. on Wednesday for a first round date with No. 3 seed Furman (25-7, 13-5 Southern). The 6 p.m. CT (7 p.m. ET) tip airs on KEYN Radio and ESPN3.  

WSU and Furman have never met on the hardwood. The winner will face either No. 2 seed Clemson (19-13) or No. 7 seed Wright State (21-13) next weekend. Higher seeds host in each of the first three rounds.

WSU entered 2018-19 with one of the nation's least-experienced rosters but gelled in February and March. The Shockers (19-14, 10-8 American) have won 11 of their last 14 games and made it to the semifinals of this weekend's AAC Tournament.
