The CBI Tournament kicks off this week, and it will be just as mad as any of the other fine college basketball tournaments. 

The College Basketball Invitational will feature a number of marquee teams fighting for one last shot of redemption this season. 

Past winners include teams like Oregon and VCU that have amazed on the biggest of stages. It's now time for a select few programs to fight and claw their way to the coveted final—played as a best of three, true-playoff scenario. 

If you want a classy alternative to the slew of basketball this month, you can't do much better than the fine play in the CBI. 

When: March 13th-March 30th, 2012

Watch: HDNet 

Featured Teams: Butler, Oregon State, Princeton and Pittsburgh

Other Participating Teams: Milwaukee, TCU, Western Illinois, Washington State, San Francisco, North Dakota State, Wyoming, Delaware, Quinnipiac, Penn, Evansville, and Wofford

Format: There are 16 teams that will fight in what is a regular bracket from tournament. The caveats we are not used to is the travel and championship round. 

Home teams will play in their own arenas and the final will be a best of three playoff. Played on March, 26, 28th and possibly 30th.
