Read About the New Rules for the NIT
Basically, this game will be more like an NBA game when it comes to fouls, except for the fact that an individual will still be disqualified after committing his fifth foul.
Don't forget about these cool additions as well:

The Yellow Jackets
From our game preview:
Holy hell are the Yellow Jackets (1) horrific on offense and (2) really good on defense. This game will resemble something of a chess match on one end and a rock fight on the other.
Let's start on defense. Georgia Tech is really good at blocking shots (4th in block percentage, 5th in blocks per game). They also hold opponents to 39.8 percent shooting from the field, 15th in the nation. They're a stingy defense, but the good news is that they aren't a defense that forces turnovers. Most encouragingly, they aren't a good team at keeping opposing offenses off the boards, something the Hoosiers are really good at.
On the other end of the court, hoooo boy are we in for a show. Georgia Tech does nothing well on that end. Like not even marginally well. It's a good thing considering the Hoosiers gave up 90 points twice in the final four regular season games. Even better news for Indiana is that Georgia Tech is only slightly better than the Hoosiers in turning the ball over, which should help alleviate some of Indiana's problems.
