In an email to Villanova Basketball supporters, the University confirmed that the 2015 NIT Season Tip-off event will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Last month, ESPN's Andy Katz noted that the preseason exempt tournament would be moving from Madison Square Garden. All signs pointed to hosting the semifinals and final in Brooklyn, but this is the first confirmation of that.

Jay Wright's Villanova squad, who won the Legends Classic at the Barclays last season, will play on November 26th and 27th in the Tournament along with the Stanford Cardinal, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, and Arkansas Razorbacks.
