While I'll be back after the NCAA Selection Show with news of Georgetown, Richmond and Cornell's destinations, I urge you to please follow the site on Twitter for frequent postseason updates about the NIT, CBI and CIT all evening.
The Tigers' RPI remains steady at 132 on Sunday.

Creighton, George Mason and Appalachian State have all announced they'll host three of the CIT's eight home games next week. Marshall has a conditional deal to play their first three CIT games at home if they don't get an NIT bid. A fifth CIT slot goes to the Great West tournament champion, South Dakota.
Northern Colorado will host a CIT game. This article also says Loyola Marymount will host a CIT game, but I can not find confirmation of this elsewhere.
That leaves either nine or 10 slots. For whatever it is worth, the guesses on Mason Blog for who George Mason will play in the CIT are "Rider, Princeton, Buffalo, or maybe Duquesne."
Illinois State expects a CBI or CIT bid if the NIT doesn't call.
Nevada is another probable CIT team if the NIT overlooks them. I've added the Wolfpack above.
Missouri State expects an invite from a tournament tonight.
Defending champion Oregon State has a serious chance to defend their CBI title.
Seattle is "avidly pursuing" a postseason bid.
Indiana State feels positive about their chances of landing in the NIT, CBI or CIT.
Eastern Kentucky is another school campaigning for the CBI and CIT.
Western Michigan has postseason interest, but the money for a home game might not be there.
11 teams are crossed off above. Washington State, Nebraska, Georgia and Bradley will almost certainly not accept postseason bids. Michigan has no interest in playing outside of the NIT. Same with South Carolina.
Ohio won the MAC tournament in OT over Akron, giving them an NCAA auto bid.
Houston Baptist lost in the Great West tournament to South Dakota.
USC is ineligible for postseason play.
