The 1994 National Invitation Tournament was the 1994 edition of the annual NCAA college basketball competition.

Of note, in Kansas State's 115-77 victory over Fresno State in the quarterfinals, Askia Jones of Kansas State set the NCAA postseason record of 14 three-point field goals. His final total of 62 points, spurred by nine consecutive successful three-point shots bridging the first and second halves, was also the second-highest scoring output in major-college postseason history.
