Here's the College Basketball Invitational schedule for tonight, with the highlight being Duquesne's game on the road against Oregon:â†µ
7:00 Rhode Island vs. UCFâ†µ
8:00 Davidson vs. Creightonâ†µ
9:00 Evansville vs. Boise Stateâ†µ
10:00 Duquesne vs. Oregonâ†µ
Duquesne won its first CBI game against Montana on Wednesday and has spent the last few days traveling through the west, heading from Missoula to Eugene.â†µ
The team had to request a waiver from the NCAA, Everhart said, to stay out west rather than follow travel regulations, which mandate that a team cannot leave more than 48 hours before a game or return later than 24 hours after a game. Postseason tournaments are exempted, Everhart said, but the NCAA doesn't recognize the CBI as a sanctioned postseason tournament.â†µ
Oregon went 17-17 this year, including 7-11 in the Pac-10. The Ducks have played a tough schedule that has included games against good teams like conference rivals Arizona, Washington and UCLA, plus Duke and Missouri. They've lost most of those games, but they did beat Washington last month.
