CIT 2017: Matchups, times, and how to watch

Everything you need to know about the CollegeInsider.com Tournament

NCAA Basketball: IUPU - Ft. Wayne at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

After the announcement of the NCAA Tournament field, the other postseason tournaments also revealed their participants.

For the ninth year in a row, CollegeInsider.com will be hosting the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT). The tournament features a 26-team field that uses five rounds to crown a champion. All of the games are played at campus sites, and the matchups are decided at the end of each round since the teams aren’t seeded.

One cool thing that the CIT is doing this year is using Facebook to broadcast the games. At least 28 games can be streamed via Facebook Live, which should provide a great alternative to traditional viewing methods.

Here’s everything you need to know about the CIT, including matchups, times, dates, and how the field is divided. All times listed are Eastern.
