One more day until the Final Four, but we have some business to attend to first. On Friday, we have two tournament finals: the CBI rubber match between North Texas and San Francisco, and the CIT championship. If that doesn’t excite you, just remember that we only have five more college basketball games to bet on this season. You’ll miss it when it’s gone.

After starting with 20 teams, only two are left standing in the 10th annual CIT tournament. The championship will be decided on the home floor of Northern Colorado, which will host the University of Illinois-Chicago. UNC will benefit from staying home in the altitude of Greeley after playing at home in the semifinals. Conversely, UIC played on the road at Liberty (in Virginia) on Wednesday. Fatigue could be a factor, but this is the last game of the season for both teams. Let’s take a deeper look at the matchups on both ends of the floor and then finish up with a prediction. Let’s get to it!
