What better way to follow up the Duke-Kansas overtime win-or-go-home thriller with the start of the best-of-three CBI championship between the Dons of San Francisco and the Mean Green of North Texas?

At least we have basketball to watch and bet on tonight. (And all week … don’t forget about the NIT and CIT.) Enjoy it while it lasts! Plus, these lower-tier tournaments can really go a long way for certain teams in the future. Just look at recent CBI champions in Loyola-Chicago (2015) and Nevada (2016), who just faced off in the Sweet 16.

The 2018 CBI championship series will tip off Monday at 10 p.m. ET, as San Francisco hosts North Texas (+3.5) in Game 1 of the three-game series. Games 2 (Wednesday) and 3 (Friday, if necessary) will be held at the Super Pit in Denton, Texas. Here’s what to look for in the title series.
