CollegeInsider.com Basketball Tournament (CIT) - 2016 CIT Postseason Tournament

2016 marks the 6th annual CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT) featuring another 32 deserving teams who do not get the opportunity to play in the NCAA or NIT Tournaments. Originally a 16-team tournament that has expanded to include as many as 32 teams, the selection of the CIT teams used to take place after the NCAA & NIT teams have been announced, but the CIT has recently been announcing bids before the NCAA Tournament has been selected in recent years.

The CollegeInsider.com Tournament looks to compete with the CBI Tournament and NIT for teams. With the NCAA, CBI and CIT Tournament and more, more than 150 Division I basketball teams will continue their seasons as the CIT has broadcast ties with CBS Sports.

The College Insider Tournament is aimed at rewarding "deserving college basketball programs" with a chance to continue their basketball season and have a chance to play on for a championship. Teams will be seeded and games will be played on campus sites with a single-elimination tournament format. The CIT Championship will also be played at a campus site which will be determined by the seeding of the remaining teams.

College Sports Fans will provide CIT scores & the CollegeInsider.com Tournament schedule all the way through the 2016 CIT Championship Game. Also be sure to check out College Sports Fans' 2016 NCAA Tournament.
