The Cats are in the CBI (vs. Vermont Catamounts)


The Catamounts will play in the 2016 College Basketball Invitational (CBI)

The Cats will travel to the University of Vermont on Wednesday night at 7 pm in Burlington, Vt.

"We are very pleased and excited to be selected to play in the College Basketball Invitational," said head coach Larry Hunter. "Our team is in a good mindset to continue to play and compete. The tournament will give our team, and in particular our seniors, an opportunity to extend our season and experience a post-season tournament atmosphere. Vermont is a quality opponent who has had a terrific season. They lost in the American East championship game to Stony Brook and were 12-3 at home this season."

For the first time since the 2009-10 season, Wester will be participating in a postseason tournament. The Vermont Catamounts compete in the America East Conference and advanced to the AEC Championship game where they fell to top-seeded Stony Brook. The match-up Wednesday will mark the first meeting between the Catamounts in any sport.
