† - Jackson State, citing policy of the Mississippi Board of Trustees, was compelled to withdraw from the tournament rather than competing in an interracial contest. This would be the only time such an occurrence would directly mar the tournament, amd Jackson State themselves would return to the tournament in 1964.

The Tigers have appeared in two National Invitation Tournaments (NIT). Their combined record is 1–2.
