Happening Hoops CBI/CIT Bracketology #1 2022

By: Ethan Hennessy

Welcome to the first installment of the 2021-22 CBI/CIT Bracketology. If you are new here I predict the fields of the College Basketball Invitational and CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournaments. This is my fifth season doing this. I have a career 87% accuracy rate (111/128).

Yearly breakdown

2018: 75% (27/36)

2019: 93% (39/42)

*2020: 88% minimum *It was later determined three days from Selection Sunday (at the time of the cancelations) I had already correctly predicted 37 of the would be 42 teams confirmed in the fields.
