As you've probably heard about -- and chuckled about -- by now, the Pitt Panthers are paying to play in the College Basketball Invitational. The Panthers don't play their game against Wofford until Wednesday, but the ferociously intense Panthers fans among you may be mildly curious about Tuesday's slate of games, since the Princeton vs. Evansville matchup at 8:00 p.m. will determine the opponent the Panthers will face in the second round, unless Wofford beats them.
Here's Tuesday's schedule.
Princeton vs. Evansville (Evansville, Ind., 8:00 p.m.)
Washington State vs. San Francisco (San Francisco, 10:00 p.m.)
Milwaukee vs. TCU (Fort Worth, 8:00 p.m.)
That leaves Wofford vs. Pittsburgh, Delaware vs. Butler, Western Illinois vs. Oregon State, Quinnipiac vs. Penn, and North Dakota State vs. Wyoming for Wednesday. A full CBI schedule can be found here.
Evansville has a 16-15 record in 2011 and came in sixth in the Missouri Valley Conference, although the Aces did beat Creighton (before getting destroyed by 28 points in a rematch a few weeks later). Princeton has a 19-11 record, and its highest-profile win has been against Harvard.
