Texas A&M, Oregon State, Penn State headline 2014 CBI field

Mar 17, 2014, 12:00 AM EDT


The seventh annual College Basketball Invitational postseason tournament also kicks off this week as Oregon State, Penn State, Texas A&M and UTEP are a few of the teams to headline the 16-team field.

The most intriguing first-round matchup has to be Fresno State — winners of nine out of its last 12 — traveling to El Paso to face UTEP.

First-round action begins with one game on Tuesday and seven games on Wednesday as play continues into early April. One of the unique things about the CBI is the best-of-three championship series at the end of the tournament. Last season Santa Clara defeated George Mason in three games and in five of the previous six years of the CBI, the championship series has made it to the third and deciding game.

Stony Brook (23-10) at Siena (15-17)

Wednesday, March 19

Hampton (18-12) at Penn State (15-17)

Morehead State (20-13) at Illinois State (16-15)
South Dakota State (19-12) at Old Dominion (16-17)
Princeton (20-8) at Tulane (17-16)

    A 2 games below .500 Penn State team is headliner? Guess I forgot this was the era where everyone gets a trophy

    The CBI: Just in case the NIT wasn’t irrelevant enough for you.

    That’s the ncaa for you. The n.i.t. sues you, so instead of admitting guilt. They buy the n.i.t. and change it from 48 teams 32 and bore the world with this shyt. Didn’t they add two stupid tournaments. How about a 64 field n.i.t. and give this shyt up.
