Fields set for CBI, CollegeInsider.com tournament
The fields have been set for the College Basketball Invitational and CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament.
The fields for the two postseason college basketball tournaments not named the NCAA or NIT have been announced.
The College Basketball Invitational (CBI) and CollegeInsder.com Postseason Tournament (CIT) will both tip off Tuesday.
