CIT
Houston Baptist at Campbell
Norfolk State at Liberty

Liberty has no history whats so ever so any tournament wins would be good for the program. Lastly, it can only help with fan attendance and getting a team full of freshmen and sophomores some tournament experience even if it's a 3rd rate tournament

Right. I'm pulling for HBU to make a nice run. They used to have a really nice program in NAIA before moving up.

I used to be kinda ambivalent towards CIT and CBI, but that took Merm Penders trying to lipstick the pigs that were his late season Coog tank jobs ("CIT is a cutting edge tournament ") to get that out of me.

Now, I'll eyeball any postseason bouncyball for the heck of it.

If Rice hosts, I may try to go. If UH was hosting postseason, I definitely would have made it.

Omaha's staying home. They actually cited the cost of the CBI and CIT as the reason why.

These tournaments may be in SERIOUS trouble --- there are a lot of schools turning them down. Are we in danger of not having one of the CIT/CBI this year?

Omaha was seemingly an obvious choice for one of these tournaments (surprise season, nearly made the NCAA by winning the Summit, a little bit of a momentum behind the program), but even they are saying "nada."

Yeah, I'm unclear how we can be asking the state for a $4 million bailout of our athletic department and at the same time sending our basketball team to a pay-to-play postseason tournament. I'm guessing we won't be playing a home game.

Wrong again! We're hosting Stephen F. Austin on Wednesday.
