2022 College Basketball Invitational First Round schedule

Adrian Holman

The College Basketball Invitational (CBI) is back at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach. If you missed out on partying when the Daytona 500 was in town earlier this year, then you can have fun this weekend watching the first round of a college basketball tournament.

The tickets for all of the games at the CBI will be $10 apiece. Having the tickets be such a low price is a good deal because the parking is also $10 as well. Nevertheless, going to an event right now for twenty bucks is an absolute bargain compared to other tournaments.

Here is a look at the CBI First Round schedule. All times are Eastern Standard Time (EST). The first round games will also be televised on FloHoops.

Saturday, March 19th

#1 Drake vs #16 Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne (IPFW) - 12 PM

#4 Stephen F. Austin (SFA) vs #13 UNC-Asheville - 2:30 PM

#2 Middle Tennessee State (MTSU) vs #15 California Baptist (CBU) - 5 PM

#3 Ohio vs #14 Rice - 7:30 PM

Sunday, March 20th

#8 Virginia Military Institute (VMI) vs #9 UNC-Wilmington - 12 PM

#5 Florida Atlantic (FAU) vs #12 Northern Colorado (UNCO) - 2:30 PM

#7 UNC-Greensboro vs #10 Boston University - 5 PM

#6 Abilene Christian (ACU) vs #11 Troy - 7:30 PM

If you take a look at the bracket, then you will see that the higher-seeded teams will be given an advantage of having a day off before the second round games on Monday. This tournament has established itself over the past decade as a viable option for postseason play for teams that did not qualify for the NCAA Tournament or the National Invitational Tournament (NIT).
