Strange that there is no mention of the Preseason NIT, does that mean none of those games will be televised?

Thank goodness I got the CBS Network package!

Look at the 49ers schedule on their website. Think if the 49ers make it to the sem-i finals & championship it will be televised. I bet ESPN picks up the games.Surely somehow local TV will pick up the Duke game. Surely ESPN will show Duke(being Duke)?

Not sure why it was left out, but ESPN does have the Preseason NIT second round game involving Duke. That will be televised, as will the semifinals and final of the PNIT.
