CBI/CIT interest tracking

This will be an on going thread to help keep track of who is and is not interested in playing in the CBI or CIT. The Dukes are likely to finish anywhere between RPI 90-115 placing them right in the wheelhouse for either tournament. When you factor in some strong road wins and a difficult schedule, the Dukes should get an offer particularly if schools ahead of them decline. So far here is what I've found so far.

72 Illinois would decline 

73 Northern Iowa waiting to see where they play but sound likely to accept

114 Virginia Tech would decline

116 Vilanova considering CBI 

120 Richmond on CBI's list

126 UW - Milwaukee would accept CBI or CIT

133 Drake coach believes they will get a bid 

151 Oregon St on fence

165 Washington St would accept

Really no one on the NCAA sanctioned bubble commenting yet and the only team that says they would decline is a likely NIT qualifier. I'll update daily.

3/5 Update

105 Old Dominion expecting post season bid 

123 Missouri Valley to decline either tournament

161 Rice in talks with both tournaments 

186 UL Lafayette getting a look from CIT

3/6 Update

110 College of Charleston and 168 Charleston Southern leaning no

116 Fairfield have bid to host

129 Indiana St Accepts CIT bid 

So 2 of the 40 CBI/CIT slots are now spoken for and Fairfield looking like a third.


81 George Mason says NIT only 

123 Richmond, Mooney leaving it up to the seniors

Not much tonight.


90 Illinois Fires Coach Can't imagine they'll participate.

96 Stanford would accept CBI bid but would not host

112 TCU would accept CBI or CIT.

113 Butler in play for CBI and CIT

119 Villanona Declines CBI

128 Iowa says NIT only
