Tracking CBI and CIT Bids

This is the place for tracking all CBI and CIT bids as Selection Sunday approaches. I only include teams that have directly expressed interest via the media or sources have told me are planning on playing. I’m updating as necessary, but if you’ve got more information, please drop me a note through the contact page. Thanks!

      I don’t know anything more than pure speculation. Given William & Mary’s KenPom rank if they are in the CIT I would think they’d have a chance to host. It may be that the school is holding out to make sure it’s not invited to the NIT before accepting a bid to a smaller tournament.

        As an alum, sure would like to see it. I think this season was a great coaching job by Coach Shaver.

        Fresno State would make a great CBI team if they want to play. I don’t know how Mountain West teams feel about the tournament.

            I would expect then that we’ll see at least 1 and quite possibly more of them in the bracket.
