CBI BracketAfter the fields for the NIT and the NCAA Tournament were set, the CBI (College Basketball Invitational), had a chance to set its field of 16 teams for its tournament. Check out the 2013 CBI bracket, as well as a look at all of the CBI games on TV that you’ll be able to find. Keep it locked on this page if your favorite team is in the CBI as well, as we will have CBI previews and CBI game recaps for all of the games in this tournament.

CBI Finals Series (Best of Three)
Game 1 – Monday 4/1 10:00 p.m. ET: George Mason @ Santa Clara (AXS.TV)
Game 2 – Wednesday 4/3 7:00 p.m. ET: Santa Clara @ George Mason (AXS.TV)
Game 3 – Friday 4/5 7:00 p.m. ET: Santa Clara @ George Mason (AXS.TV)

This should be a great three-game series between two of the teams that probably felt a bit shunned by the NIT when push came to shove on Selection Sunday. F Jonathan Arledge has been the hero for the Patriots thus far in this tournament, scoring an average of 15.0 points per game after being held to just eight points per game during the regular season. Still, if Mason is going to figure out how to steal this game on the road and essentially wrap up the CBI title, it is going to need to figure out how to stop G Kevin Foster. Foster has been lighting teams up all over the place, scoring 67 points in his last two CBI games and coming up with an average of 30.0 points per game here in the postseason. Game 1 is a must have for Santa Clara, and it is favored by 7.5-points as a result in what should be a great game to watch on Monday night. Don’t be shocked if the CBI comes right down to the wire in the third and decisive game.

CBI Semifinals Games: Live CBI Games For Wednesday, March 27th (3/27/13)
Western Michigan Broncos 52 @ George Mason Patriots 62
Santa Clara Broncos 81 @ Wright State Raiders 69

You have to give credit where credit is due to the Broncos. They have had to play some hellaciously long road trips here in the CBI, including playing two in a span of just three days against Purdue and then Wright State. This many days on the road had to be tough for the boys from California, but in the end, Santa Clara was more than good enough behind 33 points for G Keith Foster to claim victory. George Mason is in the CIT Final as well after holding Western Michigan down to just 20 points in the first half. The Patriots ultimately pulled away in thes second half and came away with a 10 point victory.

CBI Quarterfinals Games: Live CBI Games For Monday, March 25th (3/25/13)
Houston Cougars 84 @ George Mason Patriots 88
Richmond Spiders 51 @ Wright State Raiders 57
Santa Clara Broncos 86 @ Purdue Boilermakers 83
Western Michigan Broncos 75 @ Wyoming Cowboys 67

A truly great set of games here in the second round of the CBI, as two of the four games went to overtime, and the other two were decided by a combined nine points. Wright State was the biggest winner of the day, as it shut down the Richmond offense and pulled out a six-point win thanks to a big time second half. Western Michigan actually had the largest margin of victory at eight, but this was a game that was closely contested the whole way until the overtime period when the Broncos took control and never looked back. G Kevin Foster had a humongous game for Santa Clara, scoring 34 points and dishing out eight assists in the big upset for the Broncos on the road against Purdue. George Mason finished off Houston in overtime 88-84 in the highest scoring game of the day.

Round 1 CBI Bracket: Live CBI Games For Wednesday, March 20th (3/20/13)
Western Illinois Leathernecks 67 @ Purdue Boilermakers 81
Richmond Spiders 76 @ Bryant Bulldogs 71
Tulsa Golden Hurricane 52 @ Wright State Raiders 72
North Dakota State Bison 71 @ Western Michigan Broncos 72
Texas Longhorns 72 @ Houston 73

It wasn’t quite the Robert Morris upset over Kentucky, but Houston’s victory over Texas had to be considered every bit as sweet, knowing that the Cougars are going after the same recruits in the Lone Star State as the Longhorns. One of the big boys that decided to go to the CBI was knocked out, but Purdue made no mistakes, destroying a very good Western Illinois team by two touchdowns. The other team out of the Summit League in the CBI, North Dakota State was knocked off by a point in OT in Kalamazoo against Western Michigan.

Bryant was playing in its first ever postseason game, but it just didn’t have the goods to take care of a stingy Richmond outfit in the second half. Meanwhile, Wright State pulled off a bit of an upset, taking down Tulsa by a whopping 20 points in a game that was never really all that interesting.

First Round CBI Bracket: CBI Games On TV For Tuesday, March 19th (3/19/13)
George Mason Patriots 78 @ Charleston Cougars 77
Lehigh Mountain Hawks 66 @ Wyoming Cowboys 67
Vermont Catamounts 67 @ Santa Clara Broncos 77

The first day of the CBI couldn’t have been any better, and if you didn’t see any of the action, you’ll wish that you did. Charleston stormed back from a double digit deficit in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to take care of George Mason. The Patriots survived by a single point. Meanwhile in the second half of the televised double dip, Wyoming knocked off Lehigh at home by a point. Vermont tried its best to take care of Santa Clara, but it didn’t have the goods on the road to get the job done.
