NCAA vs NIT Value

Just seeking commentary regarding the fact that ISU won the Valley Tourney to gain the auto bid to the NCAA and got beat in round one. Wichita lost to us but then swept its way to becoming NIT Champions. They hang a banner, we go to the dance. Which had more value toward recruiting and other intangible factors?
But then I think of an analogy like John Smith won the Terre Haute City, but Matt Kuchar made it to the Masters. Matt didn't win, but clearly Matt gained the value of being the better player.
Wichita fans had several games to cheer over in their extended season, and we had the fun of going to the NCAA for a one and done. Value of either????
