2012 CBI Tournament: TCU, Wyoming In The Field

The 16-team CBI Tournament is one step below the NIT, but it is a post season tournament that allows teams continue playing and get better for the 2012-13 seasons. From the Mountain West, both the TCU Horned Frogs and Wyoming Cowboys elected to play and both will be hosting games.

TCU is hosting Milwaukee who finished the year 20-13 and comes from the Horizon League where they went 11-7 in league play. Milwaukee is a slow it down team that likes to grind out their games and average only 63 points per game.

Wyoming is hosting the North Dakota St. Bison who comes from the Summit League and went 9-9 in league play and 17-13 overall. North Dakota State has currently lost six of their last eight games. The one area where North Dakota State stands out is that they are the No. 6 shooting team in the country.
