Happening Hoops CBI/The Basketball Classic Bracketology #6 2022

By: Ethan Hennessy

We are less than two weeks from the start of conference tournaments. 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.

2021: 100% (8/8)

*Teams that are currently ranked first in their respective conference standings are not included in the CBI/CIT Bracketology because if the season were to end today they would receive their league’s automatic NIT bid in the event they do not win their conference tournament.

The CBI announced the entirety of their 16 team tournament will take place in Daytona Beach Florida at the Ocean Center from March 19th – 23rd. This was the site of last year’s College Basketball Invitational.

I strive to predict these brackets as accurately as possible if you are associated with a program and have information about a team’s status regarding the CBI or The Basketball Classic feel free to DM me on Twitter @HappeningHoops or email me at HappeningHoops@gmail.com I don’t publicize information I receive unless you want me to.
