UTAH VALLEY WOLVERINES
UVU To Play In CBI For Third Straight Season
OREM, Utah – After falling in the Western Athletic Conference tournament semifinals to Grand Canyon, the Utah Valley Wolverines have learned that they have failed to make the National Invitational Tournament.
Many NIT bracketologists expected that the Wolverines would make a strong case for the Little Dance, but as it turns out, the tournament’s selection committee chose to go with other teams.
As a result, UVU has chosen to enter the College Basketball Invitational, also known as the CBI, for the third straight season.

The Wolverines will host Cal State Northridge the first round of the tournament on Tuesday. The game will tip off at 5 p.m.
Led by WAC Player of the Year Jake Toolson, the Wolverines will go into the postseason tournament with a 24-9 record and a 12-9 mark in WAC play.
UVU made the CBI semifinals in 2017 and then fell in the quarterfinals last season.
The Wolverines have yet to make a showing in the NCAA Tournament.
