WEATHER FROM OUR SPONSORS
Texas and George Mason highlight the 16-team field for the sixth annual College Basketball Invitational.
Out of the NCAA tournament for the first time in 15 years, coach Rick Barnes and the Longhorns (16-17) aren’t going to the NIT, either. Instead, they accepted an invite to the lower-level CBI and will play at Houston on Wednesday night in a matchup of former powers.
George Mason, the mid-major underdog that made a stunning run to the 2006 Final Four, goes on the road Tuesday night for its tournament opener against College of Charleston.
Other first-round games Tuesday are Vermont at Santa Clara; and Lehigh at Wyoming at 7 p.m. in Laramie.
Then on Wednesday it’s Western Illinois at Purdue; Tulsa at Wright State; Richmond at Bryant; and North Dakota State at Western Michigan.
