It's the Big 12 against the ACC in the National Invitation Tournament title game on Thursday night. TCU represents the former conference and gets a chance to finish off the season as strong as they started it. Their opponent, Georgia Tech, had a rough go in a stacked ACC conference, but they are also hoping to end things on the right foot. This will be the first meeting between these two clubs. Tipoff is set for 8:00 PM Eastern time and the game will be broadcast on ESPN, WatchESPN, and the ESPN app.

Georgia Tech (21-15, 20-11 ATS)

Miami (FL) couldn't get past Stanford in the NIT championship two years ago.

The Yellow Jackets are hoping to change the ACC's fortune this time around. They were able to finally smack down eight-seeded Cal State Bakersfield in a 76-61 romp in the semifinals.

The Roadrunners were rolling through the tournament until they were limited to just 35 percent shooting from the field by Georgia Tech's defense. Josh Okogie (16.2 ppg, 5.4 rpg) led the team with 22 points. Ben Lammers (14.4 ppg, 9.3 rpg) shot an efficient 6-for-8 from the field and finished with 15 points and 11 boards.

TCU (23-15, 18-18 ATS)

The last time a Big 12 team made it to New York for the NIT, it was Baylor in 2013. They won the title game over Iowa, and the Horned Frogs are hoping to be the next conference team to do that.

Speaking of the Hawkeyes, TCU was able to take them down in a thrilling overtime victory. That was likely their toughest challenge heading into the title game as they beat UCF by 15 points in the semifinal on Tuesday.

Kenrich Williams (11 ppg, 9.6 rpg) has recorded a double-double in all four NIT games.

He recorded 14 points and 14 boards in their win over UCF, and he had a triple-double with 14 boards, 11 points, and 10 assists against Richmond. Vladimir Brodziansky (13.9 ppg, 5.7 rpg) has been rolling on offense, averaging 19 points in the last three games.

TCU is a 3.5-point favorite in this contest and the total O/U is set at 131.5 points.

The Horned Frogs are 10-2 against the spread in their last 12 games at neutral sites.
