    College Basketball Invitational

    I don't know if this has been posted on here already or not. This looks very interesting and it will be fun to see how it plays out. It will be run in direct competition to the NIT. Some teams might have to choose which tournament they want to be a part of which could be interesting considering the fact that the NIT is run by the NCAA. Here is the link: College Basketball Invitational

    This sounds like the old version of the NIT to me. Basically if you are around .500 and have good fan support they will choose you. I'll be interested to see how it plays out.

    One thing I think that is really interesting about the CBI is the championship teams play a best 2 out of 3. That seems really cool to me.

    Maybe we will play in and win the one and only CBI tournament. Then we could be the answer to a trivia question! woohoo

    Re: College Basketball Invitational

    I would certainly take an NCAA bid and even an NIT bid over this tournament, but if we get in this year, I think that would certainly be a nice way to end the season, especially for seniors like Rahshon and Jiri.

    If anything it just gives me a chance to watch more games, and I'm always down for that.

    We assume the CBI will be televised?

    Re: College Basketball Invitational

    I think all of the games are played on campus as well, so that would potentially mean more home games.

    As somebody who's been to Shreveport twice and Boise once, I'd really prefer never to go to Shreveport again.

    Last thing I heard about it they were trying to negotiate contracts with some networks Itd be awesome if NBC or ABC got it but i bet they get espn2 or FSN or even Vs. if Vs. wants to take a step up.
