Northern Colorado men’s basketball team in semifinals for College Insider Tournament

GREELEY, Colo. -- The University of Northern Colorado men's basketball team is still playing as part of the College Insider Tournament.

The Bears have won eight of their past 10 games and after wins over Drake and on the road in San Diego, the Bears are in the CIT semifinals.

The tournament is separate from the NCAA tournament.

The CIT is aimed toward smaller schools that don't get selected for the NCAA or NIT tournaments. It consists of five rounds that are single elimination-style.

Northern Colorado plays Sam Houston State in the semifinals on Wednesday.

If the Bears win, the championship game takes place Friday.
