Tracking CBI and CIT Bids

CollegeInsider.com Tournament logoThis is the place for tracking all CBI and CIT bids as Selection Sunday approaches. Also, here is a list of teams that would receive automatic NIT bids (because they finished first in their conference) if they didn’t win the tournament. I’m trying to only put 1) Teams eliminated in the chase for an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament or 2) Teams that have directly expressed interest via the media. I’m updating as necessary, but if you’ve got more information, please drop me a note through the contact page. Thanks!

Note: Teams listed amongst the automatic NIT qualifiers may also remain in contention for an NCAA at-large bid. If I believe that’s the case I’ve designated them as such.

Teams Using NIT Auto Bids:

  • Green Bay (Horizon League – could be NCAA at-large too)
  • High Point (Big South)
  • Belmont (Ohio Valley)
  • Vermont (America East)
  • Louisiana Tech (Conference USA)
  • Florida Gulf Coast (Atlantic Sun)
  • Davidson (Southern Conference)
  • Iona (MAAC)
  • Robert Morris (NEC)
