College Basketball Invitational Returns to Daytona Beach in 2022

College Basketball Invitational Returns to Daytona Beach in 2022 

January 26, 2022

PRINCETON, NJ – The 14th College Basketball Invitational will take place March 19-23 at the Ocean Center.

The 2022 CBI will be a single-elimination, fully-bracketed men’s basketball postseason tournament featuring 16 teams from across the country competing for a championship in Florida. The field will consist of teams not selected for the NCAA Tournament.

Prior to last year, the CBI was held on campus sites with the championship decided in a best-of-three series. After holding last year’s CBI in Daytona Beach and receiving high praise for the format and venue, it was decided to return to the Ocean Center this March.

“The response we received before, during, and after last year’s CBI was overwhelming, especially when you consider the circumstances the country faced at the time,” says Gazelle Group president Rick Giles. “Because of that, we felt a return to Daytona Beach was warranted. With the location of the hotel being on the beach and the arena being across the street from the hotel, it really is the perfect setting for what we hope will be another exciting CBI.”

Last year, Pepperdine won the CBI, averaging 82.0 points in their three games, which included an 84-61 win over Coastal Carolina in the championship game.

Tickets for the 2022 College Basketball Invitational will go on sale beginning February 1 at Tickets may also be purchased at the Ocean Center box office on CBI game days.

Television broadcast information for the CBI will be announced at a later date.
