The Lehigh men get to play at least one more basketball game this year, they have earned a bid to the CBI tournament and travel to Wyoming on Tuesday.

The NCAA Tournament starts this week, and there's plenty buzz about march madness. The NIT tournament is also about to get underway, it's been around a long time and features the teams that missed out on the NCAA tournament field.  The NCAA has added some other postseason tournaments too, including the CBI tournament last year.  Lehigh is in that tournament field and they'll play tomorrow.  Lehigh finished third in the Patriot League and lost in the league semifinals of the tournament but still earned a bid while Lafayette didn't earn a bid anywhere.  That puts Lehigh on the road tomorrow night, they'll play at Wyoming in round one, a tough road trip to make.  It's still an opportunity they're excited about because it means another postseason game.
