Patriots to host Fairfield in CIT opening round

http://blog.ctnews.com/elsberry/2010/03/14/stags-to-face-george-mason-in-cit/

“Just got off the phone with Fairfield coach Ed Cooley. The Stags have accepted a big to play in the 2010 College Insider Tournament.
Fairfield (20-10) will play at George Mason (17-14) of the Colonial League on Tuesday night.”

The rest of the CIT field, I guess they don’t believe in brackets so I have no idea who Mason would play next if they win Tuesday:

Tuesday March 16

South Dakota (22-9) @ Creighton (16-15)

Fairfield (22-10) @ George Mason (17-14)

Wednesday March 17

Harvard (21-7) @ Appalachian State (22-10)

Western Carolina (22-11) @ Marshall (23-9)

Middle Tennessee State (19-13) @ Missouri State (20-12)

Portland (21-10) @ Northern Colorado (24-7)

Pacific (20-11) @ Loyola Marymount (18-14)

Thursday March 18

Southern Mississippi (20-13) @ Louisiana Tech (23-10)

UPDATE: From CollegeInsider.com: “There is no set bracket. The CIT uses the old NIT model of determining future round opponents following the conclusion of the previous round.”
Also the game will be streamed live on foxcollegesports.com

    Too bad I won’t be at the game but honestly I hope we don’t lose to this team. We’ve struggled big time against opponents with better records than us and Fairfield did make it to their championship game before eventually losing. Losing 4 in a row at home is not a an option for us. Go Patriots!!
