For fans of the Toledo Rockets, your time to see your squad in the 2016-2017 season isn’t quite done yet. The Rockets will travel to George Washington on Wednesday night. GW is a perennial tourney team, and going on the road for the Rockets will not be easy. Tip time for the Rockets on Wednesday is 7pm.
From the SBN Mothership:
“The CBI is different than other tournaments, in that its final round is a best-of-three series. Everything else in the tournament is single-elimination, more in line with the conference and other postseason tournaments taking place around the country.
Broadly speaking, people do not care about the CBI, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a fun event for the teams and fan bases involved. It’s played at campus sites, and for schools whose teams don’t ever make the Big Dance, it can be a significant experience.
There are a couple of semi-regular NCAA tournament teams in the field, in George Washington and George Mason. This is Mason’s sixth straight year not in the NCAA’s main event, however, and the third straight for GW. The Colonials won the NIT last year but fired their coach, Mike Lonergan, before this season.
The CBI’s first round is on Tuesday and Wednesday. The quarterfinals are March 20, the semifinals March 22, and the final starting five days later, on March 27. ESPNU carries the final, whether it lasts two games or three.”
