CBI finals set to tip

The College Basketball Invitational — remember that? — will begin its championship series tonight.
This can’t be what the CBI was hoping for — Bradley and Tulsa in the final (here’s the schedule). But maybe two mid-major teams will be more excited about it and it will draw better than it would have if, say, UW had hosted Virginia, both schools that drew smaller-than-expected crowds for their home games in the tournament.
Columnist John Klein of the Tulsa World writes today that the CBI could lead to even more similar post-season tournaments in the future (remember, the NCAA can’t really legally do anything to regulare these tournaments).
