• Butler still finds itself in post season play

    March 13, 2012 No comments

    Butler has a chance to reach another championship game – in the College Basketball Invitational.

    Left out of the NCAA tournament – and the NIT – after a disappointing season, the Bulldogs (20-14) accepted an invite to the 16-team CBI on Sunday. The small school from Indiana, runner-up in the NCAAs the past two years, will host Delaware in the opening round Wednesday night.

    Pittsburgh, a perennial Big East power, is also headed to the CBI. Ashton Gibbs and the Panthers host Wofford on Wednesday.

    The fifth annual tournament begins Tuesday, with Milwaukee at TCU; Washington State at San Francisco; and Princeton at Evansville.

    Other first-round matchups Wednesday are Western Illinois at Oregon State; North Dakota State at Wyoming; and Quinnipiac at Penn.

    The championship round of the CBI is a best-of-three. Previous champions were Oregon (2011), Virginia Commonwealth (2010), Oregon State (2009) and Tulsa (2008).
