Davidson Hosts James Madison In CBI Tournament

The Davidson Wildcats aren't finished yet.

The Wildcats will host James Madison Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Belk Arena in a first-round game in the College Basketball Invitational. Should the Wildcats win, they will advance to a March 21 game against the Creighton-San Jose State winner, though the site has not been determined.

The CBI is a 16-team event played on college campuses with the finals being a best-of-three series.

Davidson brings a 17-14 record into the game after losing to UNC Greensboro in the quarterfinals of the Southern Conference tournament. The Wildcats, however, have won nine of their last 11 games.

James Madison is 21-11 this season and led by 6-10 forward Denzel Bowles, who averages 17.8 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.

Tickets are $14 for adults and $7 for children 12 and under. The game will be televised on HDNet television.
