Princeton at Evansville in CBI.

It is official: Princeton will visit Evansville on Tuesday, March 13th in the first round of the CBI.

There was a full bracket posted on the Gazelle Group site that I saw but it was subsequently made private. About an hour later, the CBI re-posted the same field.

Game is at 8:00 pm ET and being broadcast by HDNet.

Full bracket after the jump.

If Penn and Princeton both make the Final Four, would they be more likely to put them in separate semifinals, or have them face off before the final? Would it depend on where the other two teams hail from?

Unsure with the reseeding but I'd guess the CBI would prefer to have Penn and Princeton in the best-of-three finals should both teams advance that far. They would get some extra attention from media with that unique close to both teams' seasons.

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. When players think that way they lose the next game!

The players need to take them one at a time. The fans are not constrained in this way.

We don't have to take the games one at a time, but doing so should cause some concern. The team has very little time to prepare and to get to Evansville, 15 hours by bus, or at best a 3 hour plane ride, followed by a 3 hour bus. Should they win, they face a Big East team.

Team is flying, then taking a bus from the airport.

Could be landing in Louisville or Chicago or elsewhere.

They were still working it all out last I heard.

I'm driving, leaving in about 2.5 hours.

Hope I don't get there first!

I would never look ahead but I'm planning to be in Pittsburgh on 3/19.

The brackets are set up with a definite Eastern half and Western half which makes better sense for travel, but I suspect the semifinal matchups will likely be determined by which schools are willing to pay to host.

On the West side of the brackets, Oregon State and Washington State have already played three times, twice in regular season won by WSU and in the 8/9 game of the PAC 12 tournament won by OSU. If they met in the CBI finals they could potentially play 6 times.

Butler and Pitt's willingne$$ to ho$t is likely why you're not looking at Butler/Evansville and Princeton/Delaware pairings on that side of the draw.
