    Your stuff is real interesting to look at! I’ve noticed you never have WCC teams in the CIT…but since the CIT was started in ’09, no WCC team has ever finished above .500 on the season and NOT been invited to a tournament (25-for-25). Pepperdine and Portland should both be locks in your bracketology, either in the CBI or the CIT.

    • There 1 team from the WCC is in the CBI which is Portland (16-12) Pepperdine was considered only for the CBI because on my CIT Bracketology I take teams with very good conference record. CBI on mine is for teams top 150 or better in the RPI. CIT teams are pick first and CBI after the NIT teams are pick.
